Former ND men’s basketball guard Cameron Biedscheid killed in Friday night shooting

| Sunday, July 25, 2021

Former Notre Dame basketball player Cameron Biedscheid was killed Friday night in St. Louis County, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Biedscheid, 27, was reportedly shot late Friday night in the same block where he lived in north St. Louis County. He was pronounced dead at the scene, the Post-Dispatch reported.

A four-star prospect in his recruiting class and the 2012 Missouri Mr. Show-Me Basketball awardee during his senior year at Cardinal Ritter High School, Biedscheid was one of head coach Mike Brey’s most highly touted recruits.

The 6-foot-7 guard played one season for the Irish, averaging 6.2 points and 1.4 rebounds per game, before transferring to the University of Missouri in December 2013.

The Post-Dispatch reported police did not indicate whether they had any suspects.
