Brisbane hospital.

Basketball Australia said Friday that the 37-year-old
Poland-born Dydek, who played for the Utah Starzz, San Antonio
Silver Stars, Connecticut Sun and Los Angeles Sparks, suffered the
heart attack on Thursday.

Dydek, who is pregnant with her third child, had been working as
a coach for the Northside Wizards in the Queensland Basketball
