South Carolina State player collapses in loss at NC State

After their teammate collapsed on the court in a terrifying scene, South Carolina State's players wanted to honor him by resuming the game.

Tyvoris Solomon was taken to a hospital after collapsing during the first half of the Bulldogs' 103-71 loss at North Carolina State on Saturday.

A Rex Hospital spokeswoman said Solomon was in fair condition.

Emergency medical personnel administered chest compressions to Solomon before he was removed from the court on a stretcher. The game resumed after a 40-minute delay.

S.C. State assistant coach Rio Pitt said afterward that Solomon was "up and aware" at the hospital.
