 RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - North Carolina State officials stopped a public scrimmage when the grandfather of senior Scott Wood fell ill at courtside and was carried away on a stretcher.
Team spokesman Dwayne Harrison said later that Wood's grandfather had been taken to a hospital for evaluation. His name wasn't immediately available.
A visibly upset Wood followed behind the stretcher, and officials stopped the 20-minute intrasquad scrimmage with 3:35 left Friday night.
It was part of the ``Primetime with the Pack'' event to start the season for the Wolfpack, who are expected to be among the favorites in the Atlantic Coast Conference. It included second-year coach Mark Gottfried entering by riding a zip line down to the court from the second level of the PNC Arena stands.
The event drew more than 10,000 fans.
