Alexandra "Sasha" McHale, daughter of Kevin McHale, has passed away at the age of 22.
Sasha McHale has long battled lupus and had been hospitalized with a related condition.
“I extend my deepest condolences to Kevin and Lynn for the loss of their beautiful daughter, Sasha, on Saturday afternoon,” Rockets owner Leslie Alexander said in a statement on Sunday. ” 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.”
McHale has been on a leave of absence from coaching the Rockets since November. Obviously everyone's thoughts and prayers are with McHale and his family. A true Celtic legend.
