Ole Miss senior Rasheed Brooks was taken to a local hospital after he collapsed shortly after halftime of his team's 80-69 win over Tennessee on Tuesday night in Oxford, Mississippi, according to a school spokesman.

"Rasheed Brooks was taken to Baptist Memorial Hospital after suffering a seizure," Ole Miss spokesman Daniel Snowden said in a statement. "He is in stable condition and undergoing further testing."

A university spokesman told ESPN's Jeff Goodman that Brooks is alert.

Snowden said he "couldn't comment" about Brooks' medical history when asked if Brooks had a history of seizures.

According to The Clarion-Ledger, a school spokesman said that as of Wednesday afternoon, Brooks was still undergoing tests and awaiting their results.

A 6-foot-5 junior college transfer from Kalamazoo, Michigan, Brooks collapsed in front of his team's bench during a timeout near the 17:21 mark of the second half. The team's medical staff rushed to his aid before he was carried off the court on a stretcher.

"It's my understanding he is stable, conscious, but he does not remember anything, and he is still going through tests,'' Ole Miss coach Andy Kennedy said in his postgame news conference. "It was a frightening moment for all of us, and our prayers are with him. I turned my back and felt him fall against me, but I thought it was cramps.

"We were emotionally devastated to see Rasheed suffering, and it was hard for our players to go back out there."

Brooks is averaging 8.4 points per game and connecting on 36 percent of his 3-point attempts.
