Cement basketball team continues playing after teammate's death

Cement basketball team continues playing after teammate's death

Posted: Updated:

On Tuesday, Seth Martin's health seemed fine. Until the games were over. That's when the Cement teen collapsed. He later passed away and an unknown heart problem is believed to be to blame.

On Thursday, the lights were turned back on and the games were played as scheduled. A moment of silence was held in honor of Seth before the junior high girls tipped off followed by the ball bouncing, players running, and shots dropping.

There are signs everywhere in Seth's memory in the school. A Cement Bulldogs paw print has his #3 in the center. A banner that reads "In loving memory of Seth Martin #3 Fly High, Our Angel", with wings and a halo drawn around his names.

But it's the sign at the gym that says it all: 'These games are to honor Seth Martin'.

The basketball player played on both the junior high school basketball team and the high school basketball team before his unexpected death. Teammates say they wanted to keep playing, even after losing a teammate.
