"He just fell to the ground," Davis told News & Observer. "He had seizures a year ago and I remember (one of Team United's coaches) that he told me that." I saw his eyes rolling back in his head. "I ran in the field and thought he had a seizure, a coach came over and said he did not know what was going on, another coach checked his pulse, he said he had no pulse, then it went crazy."

The game was stopped and later exposed to all four courts. Hampton was quickly taken to Sentara CarePlex Hospital, less than a mile from the Boo Williams sports complex in Hampton, VA, where the team played.
The team decided to play on Sunday.
Team United played Sunday and won 62-51 against All Ohio Red.
"They want to play Sunday," Davis said Saturday night. "They really want to end it, the coaches are torn up right now, so it's going to be tough, but that's what the kids want to do."
