Sasha McHale, a Totino-Grace High School graduate and daughter of famed basketball legend Kevin McHale, died Saturday at the age of 23 of medical complications related to lupus, according to media reports.
A member of the Totino-Grace 2008 girls basketball Minnesota Class AAA championship team, McHale led the squad in blocked shots, according to the Star Tribune.
She earned honorable mention on the all-state team that year, according to the St. Paul Pioneer Press, which quoted Totino-Grace Activities Director Mike Smith: "I just feel for those guys. ... Our thoughts and prayers are with them. This is something you never want to happen to anybody."
