MAYWOOD, Ill. (AP) - A Chicago teenager who collapsed last weekend during a basketball tournament has died.

Jermaine Cullum was a sophomore at Christ the King Jesuit College Prep High School. The 16-year-old was playing in a basketball tournament at Riverside Brookfield High School when he collapsed on the court after a layup.

Cullum was assisted by a doctor and nurse who were in the stands at the time. They performed CPR until paramedics arrived.

The teen was then taken to Loyola Medical Center in Maywood. He was pronounced dead Tuesday.

An autopsy is scheduled for Wednesday to determine the cause of death.
