TMZ Sports reported Knight could've been sentenced for more than 50 years if he had been found guilty of all charges. His cause of death will ultimately be determined by the Maricopa County Medical Examiner. "I just ask God for forgiveness for all the wrong I've done".

He averaged 14.1 points in his final season at UCLA, second on the team, behind former National Basketball Association player Jason Kapono (16.0), and just ahead of ex-NBAer Matt Barnes (13.5).

According to ESPN.com's Joel Anderson, Knight was found dead on a roadway in Phoenix on Sunday.

Former UCLA basketball player Billy Knight died on Sunday after filming a suicide video he released earlier in the day, and some details surrounding the matter are emerging. Knight starts off the roughly 6-minute clip by saying, "This is probably my last message on Earth". No evidence of foul play was detected, according to the Phoenix Police Department. I lied, I cheated and I stole from many people. I isolated myself from my family members, I isolated myself from my friends. Knight's death came just days after 27-year-old Tyler Honeycutt fatally shot himself during a standoff with police on Friday. He follows by admitting to a life of sin, discussing mental illness, and apologizing to his family and friends.

Kim shatters LPGA scoring records in win
Kim had rounds of 63, 65, 64 and 65 as she made no race of a relentless march to her seventh career victory, and first of 2018. Kim, who is seeking her first win of the season, was a disappointing 25th at last week's KPMG Women's PGA Championship.

Knight also said he believed the video would be his "last message on earth". "I just want to at least help them out by at least putting this on YouTube". He urged people with problems to get help. "I will be in Heaven or Hell".

Knight, 39, played for UCLA from 1997-2002, where he averaged 14 points per game during his senior season. Knight played professionally overseas including stints in France and Japan and worked as a basketball skills coach. Following his playing career, he would become a basketball operations assistant for the G-League's Northern Arizona Suns, an affiliate of the Phoenix Suns, from 2016-2017.
