Houston basketball player Curry Van Horn was released from the hospital late Friday night after taking a hard fall and being taken by ambulance to TCMH.

Coach Brent Hall said Van Horn suffered a concussion and “should be fine with time.”

Van Horn was injured with 1 minute, 49 seconds left in the first quarter of Friday’s game against Salem. Van Horn drove to the air and after colliding with a defender, hit his head on the floor as he fell.

A teammate attempted to help Van Horn to his feet, but his body appeared to be limp. His teammates quickly waved for help, and Hall, family members and administration were quickly around Van Horn.

Van Horn, who was called for a charge on the play he was injured, laid motionless on the floor as paramedics arrived. He was loaded onto a stretcher and taken to TCMH, where he was released around midnight.

Van Horn hit a pair of 3-pointers to help Houston take an early double-digit lead against Salem. The Tigers eventually lost 60-52 in overtime.
