South Carolina State player collapses on bench, requires CPR to survive

South Carolina State basketball player receives CPR after collapsing on bench

Lennard Freeman scored 19 points as North Carolina State defeated South Carolina State 103-71 in a game impacted by a medical emergency Saturday afternoon at PNC Arena. He was conscious as he was taken to a hospital, according to multiple reports.

The game became secondary, though, to S.C. State guard Tyvoris Solomon's health situation.

I'm not sure how either team was able to continue on with the game after that, but South Carolina State players made a decision to return to the court, and the crowd gave them a standing ovation.

Play stopped at the other end of the court with 13:08 to play in the first half with N.C. State leading 22-5. Following his exit from the floor, both teams headed to their locker rooms as the game was delayed. Emergency personnel were seen performing CPR on the player, who was reportedly lying on the ground unresponsive.


The game was sent into a delay, and N.C. State Coach Kevin Keatts was reportedly comforting South Carolina State's head coach, Murray Garvin, on the sideline after the incident. Assistant coaches took over when play resumed.

Even though the scoreboard said South Carolina State lost the game, I'm sure they're walking away feeling like they've won. Swingman Torin Dorn (12.8 points, six rebounds) also is off to a strong start, and Turkish 7-footer Omer Yurtseven (12.1, 6.9) is giving the Wolfpack valuable production off the bench.
