Medical emergency delays SC State, NC State game at PNC Arena

South Carolina State basketball player Tyvoris Solomon was conscious as he was stretchered out of PNC Arena in Raleigh, N.C., after suffering a medical emergency Saturday. The game will resume with NC State leading 22-5 and 13:08 left in the 1st half. Initially Solomon appeared overheated and was being fanned with a jacket.

As NC State guard Markell Johnson received medical attention for a right knee injury, something much scarier happened on the opposite bench. While N.C. State's medical staff was helping him to the locker room, a public address announcement was made asking for a doctor to come to the S.C. State bench. The arena fell silent.

Some South Carolina State players formed a semicircle around the bench, their arms around one another.
