News of Hank Gathers' death stopped Joe Rhett. Now he's wondering about his athletic future. A 6-foot-8, 190-pound forward at the University of South Carolina, Rhett has an irregular heartbeat similar to the one that the late Loyola Marymount basketball star had. Like Gathers, Rhett had a fainting spelling. In fact, Rhett had two, both of which were suffered off the court in February. Unlike Gathers, however, the 19-year-old Rhett has a heartbeat that is slower than normal.

Forward Joe Rhett, who had a pacemaker implanted in February after doctors detected an irregular heartbeat, will be cleared to play basketball this season but probably not in time for today's opening practice, South Carolina athletic director King Dixon said. Rhett, a 6-foot-8 junior who averaged 10.6 points and 7.9 rebounds, was given medical clearance to play last month. But his return has been delayed by questions over legal responsibility for his on-court welfare.

The death of Loyola Marymount basketball star Hank Gathers shocked the sports world, but no one was probably more stunned than South Carolina forward Joe Rhett, who also has a heart problem. "At first I didn't believe it. It shocked me," Rhett said of Gathers' collapse during a game Sunday night and his death two hours later. "It hurt me inside; I was almost in tears. "From what they told me, his (condition) was similar to the situation I had," Rhett said Monday. "It was scary. It's still scary."
