Florida State's Terrance Shannon was carried off on a stretcher late in the Seminoles' game at Virginia on Saturday.
Shannon went down with 3:58 remaining after appearing to hit his head against the thigh or hip of Virginia's Evan Nolte during a scramble under the Florida State basket. He remained on the floor motionless for nearly 10 minutes as first trainers and then paramedics attended to him.
He eventually was loaded onto a stabilizing backboard and then onto a stretcher and taken to the hospital.
Seminoles trainer Stan Lunt said it appeared that Shannon had a ''burner in the neck area, and he has some tingling and numbness in his extremities,'' prompting doctors to recommend he be taken to the hospital and checked out as a precaution. Lunt left shortly thereafter for the hospital.
