Aztec Player Collapses During Game

The medical emergency halted the game for about 10 minutes

A San Diego State University basketball player collapsed on the court Monday night, bringing the game to a standstill.

Forward Dwayne Polee II fell to the ground with 11 minutes to go in the first half in the game against UC Riverside at Viejas Arena.

The crowd held its breath as medics tended to Polee. After a long 10 minutes, he was taken off the court in a stretcher. He appeared to be alert.

The arena gave No. 5 a standing ovation and chanted "Polee, Polee" as he was carted away. The game then resumed. 

It’s unclear why Polee collapsed. The athletic department tweeted that he was taken to the hospital but did not give an update on his condition.
