Conrad McRae, Syracuse University basketball player, will appeal a judge's decision forbidding him from suing the NCAA for $1.35 million over a four-game suspension last year, said his attorney, Eric Alderman. After deliberating more than a month, state Supreme Court Justice Thomas J. Murphy issued a 12-page decision agreeing with the NCAA that its relationship was with Syracuse, not McRae. Therefore, the NCAA owes no duty to McRae that would allow him to sue.

An autopsy Tuesday failed to determine what caused former Syracuse basketball player Conrad McRae's death at UC Irvine on the first day of practice for the Orlando Magic's summer league team. McRae, 29, who had a history of heart problems, collapsed while running wind sprints during the team's practice Monday afternoon. Details are sketchy, but UC Irvine spokeswoman Karen Young said someone called campus police, who arrived with Orange County paramedics at 1:41 p.m.
