Obituary - Hendersonville (NC) Times-News (November 26, 1982)
Yarbrough, 41, was pronounced dead at Baptist Hospital in Memphis about 9 p.m. Friday.
He collapsed on the floor of the Mid-South Coliseum while working a game between Tulane and Wyoming.
Doctors and paramedics used electric shocks and a respirator in trying to bring him around as the game was stopped and players went to their dressing rooms. The game was delayed for about an hour.
Yarbrough was parks and recreation director for the city of Meridian, Miss., and a spokesman at Baptist Hospital said he died of a heart attack.
"When we went back to the dressing room while they were administering to him, we just put our heads down and prayed," said Tulane basketball Coach Ned Fowler. "I just told our players that it wasn't something that was in our hands."
