A South Carolina State men's basketball player was given CPR and stretchered off the court after he collapsed on the sideline during Saturday's game against NC State at PNC Arena in Raleigh.

The player was guard Tyvoris Solomon, per ESPN.com's Jeff Goodman. Gary Parrish of CBS Sports reported the redshirt senior was revived.

The official Twitter account for NC State men's basketball announced the game was delayed by a medical emergency.

According to Pack Pride, Solomon was lying on the ground and unresponsive. After receiving CPR, he was loaded onto a stretcher, and the teams left the court, per Pack Pride.

South Carolina State head coach Murray Garvin traveled with Solomon to the hospital and said Solomon was "awake and responding," per Goodman. "Garvin also said that Solomon's heart stopped and he was resuscitated by South Carolina State's athletic trainer."

The Wolfpacker tweeted a photo of players praying while Solomon was being tended to:

Soon after Solomon was carried off, it was announced the game would resume following a 10-minute warm-up, per The Wolfpacker.

Pack Pride reported the decision came after South Carolina State's players voted in favor of returning to the court.

When the Bulldogs returned to the court, the crowd offered a standing ovation:
