Ex-Gibbons star Quintin Dailey dies at 49

Quintin Dailey, who was widely regarded as one of the best high school basketball players in the history of Baltimore, died Monday at his home in Las Vegas. He was 49.

The Clark County Coroner's Office told the Las Vegas Review-Journal that Dailey died from hypertensive cardiovascular disease. Dailey, a college star at the University of San Francisco who spent 10 rocky years in the NBA, had been working as a supervisor at the Parkdale Community Center in Las Vegas, helping at-risk kids.

News of his passing saddened those who knew him and remembered him from his teenage years in Baltimore, where he set the all-time Maryland state scoring record while playing at Cardinal Gibbons from 1977 to 1979. He was so quick and so gifted with a basketball, he still ranks third on the all-time scoring list behind Rodney Monroe and Sean Mosley.
