    A referee officiating the Elite 8 game between Gonzaga and USC collapsed during the first half of the game, briefly halting play while medical personnel attended to him. The referee was shown standing and looking a little dazed when he fainted and hit the ground without using his arms to brace himself. Medical staff reached him quickly and thankfully he appeared to be alert while he was taken off the court on a stretcher. A NCAA spokesperson released a statement that read "Bert is alert and stable and will not be transported to a hospital. He has been in contact with his family." Here's to a speedy recovery.

    Hopefully no new news is good news and that he is still doing ok. How scary.
