Florida Basketball star Keyontae Johnson collapsed on the court Saturday as the Gators took on Florida State.  He was celebrating an alley-oop that he had just thrown down prior to collapsing.

Johnson is in critical but stable condition at a local hospital.  Florida players were understandablly emotional before the game restarted.

From ESPN:

Florida basketball star Keyontae Johnson collapsed early in the game against rival Florida State and is in critical but stable condition at Tallahassee Memorial, according to the school.

The Gators were coming out of a timeout Saturday when the cameras cut away from the court and ESPNU broadcasters said Johnson had collapsed. He was given emergency medical attention and taken to the locker room.

You hate hear about a basketball player collapsing on the court.  That usually means there's some sort of serious underlying condition.

Hopefully that's not the case for Johnson and he's able to make a full recovery and return to playing basketball real soon.
