ROANOKE, Va. (AP) - Floyd County school officials say a 13-year-old basketball player died after collapsing on court.

School officials say in a statement released to media outlets that attempts to revive 13-year-old Leah Goff were unsuccessful.

Goff was playing with the Roanoke Spectrum, a traveling recreation team, in Roanoke when she collapsed Tuesday night.

Goff was a rising eighth-grader at Floyd County High School.

Counselors are available at the high school on Wednesday and Thursday to assist students.
