A scary moment punctuated a disappointing loss for No. 20 Wichita State on Friday.

Shockers senior forward Anton Grady took an awkward and accidental smash to the head and neck from Alabama’s Dazon Ingram. The encounter caused Grady to hit the floor, where he appeared to be completely motionless for many minutes. Grady had to be rolled out of the arena on a gurney.

On Friday afternoon, Wichita State communications director Bryan Holmgren said Grady was “awake” and “alert.” He’s still undergoing tests. Updates to his status will be made to this story as they become available to CBS Sports.

Here’s video of the injury.
