EAST LANSING, Mich. -- Michigan State cheerleader Taylor Young was in stable condition at a local hospital after falling on her face during a performance.

The 20-year-old junior from Twin Lake, Mich., was raised into the air and fell hard onto the court during a timeout Wednesday night when the Spartans hosted Florida State

Dr. Jeff Kovan, the basketball team's physician, was among the medical personnel who evaluated the cheerleader. She was slowly strapped to a backboard and her head was immobilized.

The cheerleader smiled and stuck both thumbs up when the crowd cheered after she was lifted onto a stretcher.

"She's OK," Michigan State athletic director Mark Hollis said.
