Keyontae Johnson is in critical but stable condition after collapsing early in Saturday’s game between Florida and Florida State. He was walking back to the court after a timeout when he passed out.

Johnson, 21, was taken off the floor on a stretcher. He will stay at Tallahassee Memorial HealthCare overnight with coach Mike White by his side.

The cause of his ailment was not immediately known, but he tested positive for coronavirus during the summer, like most of his teammates.

His team was up 11-3 after he completed a dunk before the timeout and his collapse, but eventually lost, 83-71.

The junior forward is averaging 19.7 points, 6 rebounds, and 1.7 assists per NCAA match this season.
