Morgan State senior forward Thair Heath left the floor on a stretcher after being injured Monday during the Bears’ road game against Coppin State in Baltimore.

With 13:51 left in the first half, Heath drove the lane and was fouled by Coppin State senior forward Michael Murray. Heath took a hard spill and was down for about eight minutes.

As a precautionary measure, Heath was taken off the court on a stretcher in a neck immobilizer.

A native of Long Beach, Calif., Heath helped Dominguez High School in Compton, Calif., win a state title before playing one season for San Bernardino Valley College. He is in his third season at Morgan State, and he started 12 games as a junior.
