The direction of the Girard College boys' basketball team is still uncertain, as recently hired head coach Mik Kilgore suffered a heart attack last week and was in serious condition.

Kilgore, a former standout at Wets Philadelphia High and Temple, was hospitalized after suffering a heart attack while directing a workout at Girard.

A Girard College spokesperson said Wednesday afternoon that the school was waiting to be updated on Kilgore's condition.

The 6-foot-9 forward scored 1,471 points in 124 games and played on three NCAA Tournament teams for the Owls from 1988-92. The 1991 squad advanced to the Elite Eight before losing, 75-72, to North Carolina in the East Regional final.

Kilgore played professionally in Italy, France, Taiwan, and Venezuela.

Last season, under former head coach Bobby Jordan, Girard went 18-7, placed second to Faith Christian in the PIAA District 1 Class A playoffs, and lost to District 12 champ Sankofa Freedom, 80-59, in the first round of states.
