Guy Alang-Ntang, a senior, was playing in a pick-up game at the Smith Gymnasium on the prep school campus.
A school spokesman says he was on the court, away from the action, when he apparently lost consciousness and fell backward about 7 p.m. Monday. He was taken by ambulance to Speare Memorial Hospital in Plymouth, where he was later pronounced dead.
Alang-Ntang is survived by his parents, who live in Cameroon, Africa.
