“This is a very tough blow,” said Jerry Colangelo, director of USA Basketball, according to the outlet. “It’s a first for us in USA basketball to have something like this take place. It’s a tough situation for our entire organization, our coaches and players and very, very emotional. There’s no way the game could have gone on under the circumstances.”

Our thoughts go out to Paul during this difficult time. We are hoping for a full recovery.
