Wood's grandfather falls ill during scrimmage

  •  

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - North Carolina State officials stopped a public scrimmage Friday night when the grandfather of senior Scott Wood fell ill at courtside and was carried away on a stretcher.

Team spokesman Dwayne Harrison said Wood's grandfather was taken to a hospital for evaluation, but he was alert and conscious. His name wasn't immediately available.

A visibly upset Wood followed behind the stretcher, and officials stopped the 20-minute intrasquad scrimmage with 3:35 left.

It was part of the "Primetime with the Pack" event for the Wolfpack, who are expected to be among the favorites in the Atlantic Coast Conference. It included second-year coach Mark Gottfried entering by riding a zip line down to the court from the second level of the PNC Arena stands.

The event drew more than 10,000 fans.
