Nate Miller, a former college basketball star at Bowling Green, has reportedly passed away. He was just 34 years old. 

Miller was a high school basketball star before going onto become a 1,000 point scorer at Bowling Green. 

He's since been an active participant in the community, particularly with the youth. 

He will be missed.
