Scary! Stanford player collapses after overtime win
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Stanford guard Jeremy Green was taken to the hospital after collapsing following the Cardinal’s 81-74 victory over DePaul on Sunday.
“As Jeremy was leaving the court following the game, he began to experience some dizziness and stomach pain due to exhaustion,” Stanford’s sports information department said in statement. “After receiving treatment at the arena, Jeremy was then transported to a local hospital for further treatment. Jeremy is currently in stable condition, and expected to travel back with the team later tonight.”
Stanford athletic director Bob Bowlsby said he spoke to Cardinal coach Johnny Dawkins, who said Green has been fighting a stomach virus all week and had been unable to keep any food down. Green never lost consciousness, with the consensus being that he was overcome by exhaustion.
The junior from Austin, Texas, played 39 minutes while leading Stanford with 19 points on 8-of-16 shooting against DePaul. The game was part of the 76 Classic.
