The news spread quickly on Twitter last night and was confirmed this afternoon in a press release from St. Bonaventure -- redshirt junior Andrew Revello died on Wednesday as a result of injuries he suffered in a car accident on June 1 in Butler Township, Pa.

The 22-year old was a startng pitcher for the Bona baseball team. A native of Highland Heights, Ohio, he was an accounting major at the school.

This past season, Revello emerged as a leader in the Bonnies rotation and led the team in wins (five), innings pitched (77 1/3), and strike outs (57).

"Andrew Revello -- Dice to his teammates -- was a tireless worker, a good student and a joy to be around," Bona baseball coach Larry Sudbrook said. "He was always willing to share his opinion on anything sports-related and enjoyed the give-and-take as much as his teammates. Dice loved St. Bonaventure baseball and it loved him back."

We extend our deepest condolences to his family, as well as to his teammates and members of the St. Bonaventure community with whom he developed such a strong and lasting bond."
