KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -Coach Bruce Pearl says Tennessee forward Emmanuel Negedu likely will remain hospitalized for another night as his doctors and guardians review tests and make decisions about his playing future.
Negedu was revived by members of the Volunteers' training staff after a post-workout collapse at the Tennessee training facilities. Tennessee staff have not confirmed reports that the 20-year-old did not have a pulse after collapsing.
Pearl says doctors are reviewing whether the 6-foot-7, 218-pound sophomore from Kaduna, Nigeria, has hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, a condition blamed for the sudden death or more than a hundred athletes each year.
Pearl said Wednesday Negedu is in no immediate danger but asked fans to continue to pray for him and to stop speculating about his future in basketball.
