ATCHISON, Kan. — Benedictine College has canceled Friday’s basketball game because of a player’s death. Reginald Demps Junior died Dec. 21 in a traffic accident in Weston, Mo. He crashed on his way to KCI Airport, headed for a holiday trip to Colorado. His teammate, Quaran Johnson was injured in the crash as well.
