 SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - Washington State reserve guard Stephen Sauls was hospitalized after he collapsed and appeared to stop breathing during practice.
The freshman was struck in the head and then collapsed during a team scrimmage Monday evening. He was taken to Pullman Regional Hospital, coach Tony Bennett said.
Sauls had a concussion and will remain in the hospital indefinitely while doctors perform tests.
``Right now he is doing OK,'' Bennett said. ``I saw him last night and he had a headache. He felt better this morning.''
Sauls took an elbow to the face during the scrimmage, team officials said. He went down on all fours, rose to his feet, and walked off the court before falling to his knees, then collapsing on the floor.
Trainer Nick Gallotto briefly administered mouth-to-mouth resuscitation and Sauls regained consciousness, Bennett said.
Bennett said it was unclear if Sauls had stopped breathing, or was breathing shallowly.
He said the team had continued practice after Sauls walked off the floor, and wasn't aware of anything until after Sauls had been revived.
``I turned around and saw Steph was having trouble,'' Bennett said. ``By the time we walked over there he was conscious again. I didn't see the trainer give him a breath.''
Bennett said the team prayed together for Sauls, who was able to walk to the training room with director of athletic training Bill Drake and was taken to the hospital.
``They'll do tests to make sure everything is good,'' Bennett said.
Sauls will likely not make the trip with the fourth-ranked Cougars to Southern Cal and No. 5 UCLA this week. But Bennett expected he would return to action this season.
Sauls, from Missouri City, Texas, has appeared in eight games and is averaging 2.1 points.
