San Diego State senior forward Dwayne Polee II has been released from the hospital and is resting at home awaiting test results after collapsing in the first half of last night's game against UC Riverside, according to the U-T San Diego's Mark Zeigler.
Zeigler tweeted that an SDSU spokesperson said Polee was cleared to resume normal everyday activity, but that he hasn't been cleared for basketball activities.

Polee was taken to the hospital last night after inexplicably collapsing to the ground and apparently losing consciousness while defending against the UC Riverside Highlanders.
Polee fist-bumped his teammates as he was carted off and waved the the crowd as he was taken out of the cheering arena.
"He smiled and was high-riving everyone for us to win the game," coach Brian Dutcher told Fox Sports after halftime.
Polee's teammates followed his orders and convincingly won the game 61-33.
SDSU next plays Dec. 27 against San Diego Christian College.
