Pray for Danny

I don't post a lot of sports stories here, but this isn't a basketball-specific news item, either.
Tonight's BYU vs Utah State college basketball game has been postponed after a significant health scare by Danny Berger, a junior forward for the Aggies.
Berger, who averaged 7.6 points and 3.6 rebounds per game, collapsed near the end of practice Dec. 4  in Logan, Utah. The 6-foot-6 junior college transfer was resuscitated with the aid of an AED by the Utah State athletic training staff, and has been transported to Intermountain Medical Center in Murray.
He is currently listed in critical but stable condition at the hospital, and second-hand reports from teammates have been positive.
BYU announced the transfer Wednesday morning, after it was reported by the Salt Lake Tribune late Tuesday night.
Both teams have an available midweek date next week, but athletes will be in the middle of finals week at the time. A makeup date hasn't been announced.
At times like these, fans of both teams should be praying Berger makes a swift recovery. Berger, who served an LDS mission in Detroit, transferred from Chemeketa Community College in Oregon last year.
