A very disturbing situation took place at Utah State's basketball practice Tuesday.

While standing off to the side during the practice session, the Aggies' Danny Berger collapsed and his heart stopped beating. According to the Salt Lake Tribune, CPR was given and an external defibrillator was applied to revive Berger.

He was taken to the hospital and is currently in critical condition, according to a tweet from CBS Sports' Jeff Borzello:

Berger was averaging 7.6 points and 3.6 rebounds in a little more than 22 minutes per game for Utah State. The 4-1 Aggies were slated to play at BYU on Wednesday night, but given the situation, the game has been postponed.

Berger's family is already with him, and the team is expected to visit Wednesday.
