How tragic. Kevin’s daughter Alexandra ‘Sasha’ McHale died on Saturday Nov. 24 after a long battle with lupus.

Kevin McHale, the head coach of the Houston Rockets, is heartbroken after his 23-year-old daughter Alexandra “Sasha” McHale died on Saturday Nov. 24.

Sasha had reportedly suffered from the auto-immune disease for a long time and she was hospitalized with a related condition, according to the Houston Chronicle.

“Kevin and Lynn are loving and dedicated parents who will need our continued support throughout this very difficult time. Our entire organization is mourning the McHale family’s loss and we ask that you keep them in your thoughts and prayers,” team owner Leslie Alexander said in a statement, expressing her “deepest condolences.”

Kevin, 54, has been on leave for the past two weeks, spending time with his family. In his place, assistant Kelvin Sampson has been acting as head coach.

Alexandra was a student at University of Minnesota Duluth until she took a leave of absence due to her illness. She was diagnosed with lupus last year.

Our thoughts go out to Kevin and his family at this difficult time.
