Syracuse's Hillsman travels home
Syracuse coach Quentin Hillsman is OK after collapsing on the sideline late in the second half of a game at Louisville.
Hillsman was taken to the locker room and examined by doctors before traveling home with the team Saturday.
Hillsman tells The Associated Press in a telephone interview that he feels fine. He says he got a little dizzy, and blacked out for a second.
Hillsman went down with 5:30 left and his team leading by nine. Assistant coach Rick Moody took over and helped the Orange hold on for a 64-58 victory.
Erica Morrow scored 23 points to help Syracuse (16-3, 3-3 Big East) end a two-game skid.
Hillman has been the head coach of the Orange since 2006.
