Why Did My Basil Plant Die?

A friend gave me a basil plant and I don't have much experience with plants or having a garden. Well, the plant has died on me. I watered it about 2 times a week and placed in window sill to get sunshine, but it still died. Is there any way to still save it? Did I do something wrong? Any advice? Thank you for all answers.

Change out pots? Root bound? Basil loves space and outdoors.

You might have over watered. Basil likes to be consistently moist, but not soggy and it might have done better in a shady spot outside. Try again! There is nothing better than fresh herbs!
