Connie Yori Nebraska Women's Basketball

LINCOLN, Neb. -- A Nebraska athletic department official says women's basketball coach Connie Yori is resting at home after collapsing during the second half of the 21st-ranked Cornhuskers' game against Indiana.

Associate athletic director Marc Boehm said Monday that Yori was released from a Lincoln hospital Sunday and is "doing well."

Boehm said Yori had been bothered by dizzy spells before she collapsed in front of the Nebraska bench with about 12 minutes left in the game.
  
She walked off the court under her own power and received treatment in the athletic training room at Pinnacle Bank Arena. The 50-year-old Yori was taken by ambulance to a hospital for evaluation.

Associate head coach Sunny Smallwood took over coaching duties in Yori's absence. The Huskers won 76-61. They play Thursday at Ohio State.
