FAIRFAX, Va. (AP) _ George Mason junior guard Darren Tarver had a heart attack while playing a pickup game, school officials said Friday.
He was hospitalized Friday in stable condition.
Tarver went into cardiac arrest Thursday while taking a break during a game in the team's gym, team physician Dr. Frank Pettrone said.
Tarver, a transfer from Wabash Valley, Ill., Community College, averaged 18 points in three games for the Patriots before a stress fracture in his left foot ended his season.
