SC State player in fair condition after collapse on court

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - A South Carolina State player collapsed on the court and was taken to a hospital during the first half of the Bulldogs' 103-71 loss at North Carolina State on Saturday.

A spokeswoman for Rex Hospital said Solomon was in fair condition.

Emergency medical personnel administered chest compressions before he was transported off the court on a stretcher.

Solomon collapsed near the bench at the 13:08 mark. The arena fell silent. Cries rang out from people around the Bulldogs' bench as staff members fanned Solomon with a jacket.

Solomon, a 5-foot-10 senior guard, started the game and checked out at the 16:02 mark.

The game resumed after a 40-minute delay. Team spokesman Kendrick Lewis said S.C. State coach Murray Garvin went with Solomon to the hospital. Assistant Rio Pitt led the team for the remainder of the game.

Once they knew that Solomon was conscious and able to speak, S.C. State's players decided to keep playing.

"They said they would do what Ty would do, and Ty would tell us to go out there and play," Pitt said. "That was the response the guys gave us. We let them decide."
