SKOPJE, Macedonia (AP) Macedonian authorities say American basketball player Cameron Moore, who recently arrived in the country to join AV Ohrid, died suddenly during his first practice with the team.

The team's legal representative, Ivo Markoski, told The Associated Press on Wednesday that the 25-year-old Moore arrived in Ohrid late Monday from Venice, Italy. He said the player had been in Ohrid, a tourist resort town in southern Macedonia, for about 24 hours and the death occurred Tuesday.

Ohrid police spokesman Stefan Dimeski confirmed an American basketball player died suddenly late Tuesday, but did not release his identity citing an ongoing forensic investigation into the death. Dimeski said the player collapsed during practice and was rushed to the hospital but was pronounced dead on arrival.
