North Carolina State Warden Terquavion Smith is on the job day in and day out after a scary fall led to him being rolled off the pitch on a stretcher in North Carolina’s loss on Saturday, the school said Sunday.

Smith who is projected from several points of sale a… to be first round Pick in the 2023 NBA Draft reported neck and elbow pain and numbness in his right arm after being fouled on a drive by UNC’s Leaky Black, who was ejected for a foul by Flagrant Two, the school said.

Medical personnel used the backboard and stretcher based on his report of neck pain, although X-rays at UNC Medical Center revealed no fractures.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with Terquavion right now,” NC State Coach Kevin Keatts said after the game. “It’s a very emotional situation for me right now. … My prayers and my thoughts always go out to my players at moments like this.”

NC State hosts Notre Dame on Tuesday.
