Casper, 24, died Nov. 23 at UK Hospital. She was critically injured early the day before, when, according to police, she apparently lost control of her car negotiating a curve on Chinoe Road near Fontaine Road. The car hit a tree, police said.
Alcohol and speed were thought to be factors in the accident.
Casper played for UK from 2003 to 2006 and graduated from the university in May 2007. Originally from Louisville and a graduate of Mercy Academy, Casper was the Southeastern Conference record-holder in career digs, ranked 13th in NCAA Division I volleyball history in career digs and was a two-time SEC Defensive Player of the Year.
