South Carolina State guard Tyvoris Solomon was rushed to a hospital Saturday afternoon after his heart stopped during the Bulldogs’ 103-71 loss to NC State.
Bulldogs coach Murray Garvin said that Solomon was “awake and responding” at Rex Hospital in Raleigh, North Carolina. A Rex Hospital spokeswoman said Solomon was in fair condition.
Solomon was resuscitated by South Carolina State’s athletic trainer, Tyler Long, whom Garvin praised in a statement Saturday night “for his quick response in that life-or-death moment. He along with the EMS staff rose to the occasion and saved Ty’s life.”
