Blab’s son killed in altercation

Sad news coming out of Texas:

Witnesses said Christopher Blab, 19, was punched in the face during the altercation outside the University Heights apartments in San Marcos. He fell and hit his head on the concrete. According to police, two of Blab’s friends took him to Central Texas Medical Center before he was transferred to UMC Brackenridge for a severe head injury. He died from his injuries on Sunday.

Christopher’s father, Uwe Blab, played for Indiana and went on to a professional career with the Dallas Mavericks and the San Antonio Spurs in the 1980s.


  1. Wow, that’s tragic.

    I have fond memories of Uwe Blab playing back in the day. Plus he had a really awesome name to day.

    Uwe Blab. Uwe Blab. Uwe Blab.

  2. Chris was a good kid. He coached his little brother’s basketball team the year my son played and he was great with the kids. It’s a heart felt loss in our community.

  3. I went to school with Chris and i can personally say he was one of the greatest people. This is tragic to his family, friends, and the commuinity of Wimberley. He will be forever missed.
