Former Clemson guard Stitt found dead at North Carolina home

CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) Former Clemson point guard Demontez Stitt was found dead at his home in Charlotte, North Carolina on Tuesday night.

Lead investigator Eric Wheeler in the Mecklenburg County Medical Examiner's Office said Wednesday in an email to The Associated Press there was no trauma found on the body of 27-year-old Stitt and that foul play is not suspected.

Wheeler said a cause of death is still pending.

Stitt played with the Tigers from 2007-2011 and is the only one in program history to start on four straight NCAA Tournament teams.

He averaged 14.5 points and 4.3 rebounds as a senior in 2010-11.

Clemson coach Brad Brownell said Stitt was a pleasure to coach, a player with a ''big smile and competitive spirit.''
