Tyvoris Solomon is in stable condition after collapsing during the men's basketball game against NC State, according to the South Carolina State University's athletic department.

According to a release from the department, Solomon is recovering and will stay in a hospital in Raleigh for testing and observation.

Solomon collapsed on the bench during the first half of the game at PNC Arena. Head Coach Murray Garvin left the game to be by Solomon's side. Garvin said Solomon had to be resuscitated after the collapse.

Director of Athletics Stacy Danley is "extremely thankful" that Solomon is recovering, saying, " "On behalf of SC State University, I would like to thank the NC State Athletic Department Administration, medical staff, first responders and our athletic trainer, Tyler Long, for the extraordinary assistance provided to Ty. Their overall performance was phenomenal and for that we are deeply appreciative and grateful. Please continue to keep Ty and his family in your prayers as he continues down the road of recovery."

Solomon posted a picture on Saturday night of him in a hospital bed, posing with the people who he says saved his life.

Both teams elected to continue with the game. NC State beat SC State 103-71.
