Raymond Alan Ogg (July 5, 1967 – November 1, 2009) was an American professional basketball player who spent three seasons in the National Basketball Association (NBA). He is the University of Alabama at Birmingham Blazers' career shot-blocking leader with 266 blocks over four college seasons.[1] He was born in Lancaster, Ohio.

The 7'2" and 240-pound center Gardendale High School grad played collegiate basketball for the UAB Blazers and started his professional career when he signed with the Miami Heat as an undrafted rookie free agent during the 1990–91 NBA season. He became a fan favorite during his two seasons in Miami and split his playing time in his third and final NBA season with the Milwaukee Bucks and the Washington Bullets. He averaged 2.2 points and 1.7 rebounds during his NBA career.[1] Ogg played overseas in Germany, China, Colombia, the Philippines, Puerto Rico and Paraguay before retiring from professional basketball in 2001. He had heart surgery in 2003.[2]

Ogg died aged 42 on November 1, 2009 in the UAB Hospital in Birmingham, Alabama, due to complications from a staphylococcal infection[3] in his heart valve.[2]
