SAN DIEGO (AP) — San Diego State senior forward Dwayne Polee II was released from the hospital and was resting at home less than 24 hours after he collapsed on the court during a game, the school said Tuesday evening.

Polee had a series of tests Tuesday and is awaiting results, spokesman Mike May said. Polee can resume normal activities but has not been cleared for basketball.

The Aztecs are off until Friday, when they practice for Saturday's home game against San Diego Christian College.

Polee collapsed midway through the first half of Monday night's game against UC Riverside and was tended to by trainers and a paramedic for about 15 minutes before being wheeled off on a gurney. He was conscious and acknowledged the crowd by pumping his fists. He also gave his teammates fist-bumps.

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 turned and ran down the floor. He stumbled and collapsed face-first near the key across from SDSU's bench.

Right after he fell, someone in the crowd hollered, "Call 911!"

Polee's father and mother came out of the stands to be near their son. His father, Dwayne Sr., is director of player development at the University of San Francisco.

Fisher spoke with Polee as he was wheeled off the court.

"I said, 'Dwayne, you're going to be fine,' " Fisher said. "He said, 'I'm OK coach. Tell them to win the game.' "

SDSU, which fell out of The Associated Press Top 25 earlier Monday, won 61-33.

Fisher visited Polee in the hospital Monday night, May said.
