SAN DIEGO (AP) — Dwayne Polee II collapsed during the first half of San Diego State's 61-33 victory against UC Riverside on Monday night and Viejas Arena fell silent for about 15 minutes while the senior forward was tended to by trainers and a paramedic.

Polee was "completely responsive" when he was wheeled off the court on a gurney, spokesman Mike May said

Polee had missed a layup and teammate JJ O'Brien scored on a tip-in for a 14-8 lead with more than 11 minutes left in the half. Polee, from Los Angeles, turned, ran down the floor and collapsed face-first near the key opposite SDSU's bench.

When play resumed, SDSU went on a 12-3 run to close the half and take a 26-11 halftime lead.

Aqeel Quinn scored 18 points and O'Brien 12 for SDSU (9-3), which fell out of The Associated Press Top 25 earlier Monday.

Jaylen Bland scored nine for UCR (6-5).
