AP / May 28, 2011 BRISBANE, Australia — Margo Dydek, a 7-foot-2 former WNBA player who led the league in blocks nine times, died yesterday at 37 after being placed in a medically induced coma following a heart attack a week ago.

Her death was confirmed by Cathy Roberts of the Northside Wizards in the Queensland Basketball League, where Ms. Dydek was the coach.

Ms. Dydek, who was pregnant with her third child, suffered the heart attack on May 19 and collapsed at her home in Brisbane. Roberts said that Ms. Dydek was at an early stage in her pregnancy and that the child had also died.
