Utah basketball player still in critical condition

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - A Utah State basketball player who collapsed at practice and stopped breathing remains in critical condition this morning.

Intermountain Medical Center spokesman Jess Gomez says Danny Berger is in critical condition Wednesday morning at the hospital in Murray.

Utah State officials announced this morning that the basketball game scheduled for Wednesday night in Provo between Utah State University and Brigham Young University has been postponed due to Berger's serious medical condition.

Emergency responders had to use a defibrillator to get Berger breathing again during practice Tuesday in Logan. It is unknown what caused Berger to collapse. Tests and evaluations are ongoing.

The junior from Medford, Ore., is a starting forward for the Utah State Aggies. He averages 7.6 points per game and 3.6 rebounds.
