President David Boren was taken by medical personnel from the Bob Stoops' statue ceremony, Saturday (April 14) morning. Paramedics were soon called to his aid.

Saturday evening, the University of Oklahoma released a statement saying Boren underwent several tests and it was determined that he had suffered a minor stroke.

Due to the timeliness of the treatment, Boren is alert and communicating with family and medical professionals, officials said. "President and Mrs. (Molly) Boren deeply appreciate the outpouring of love and support they have received". A paramedic sat next to the president to check his status and, minutes later while Castiglione was still addressing a large crowd, a stretcher was sent out to take Boren away. "Everything's going to be okay", said Castiglione.

Boren, 76, had only just spoke before Stoops took the podium to make some remarks. He was replaced by offensive coordinator Lincoln Riley and the Sooners made the College Football Playoff. But he was highly concerned about the incident after the contest concluded.

Last year's drama-filled offseason created concern that Kristaps Porzingis' time in NY would end before it could even truly begin. The Knicks are looking for a new head coach following the firing of Jeff Hornacek last week after two seasons in charge.

"It's tough to describe". "He's a guy that I'm very close to, means a lot to me, and so tough for it to be such a great event and great thing and to see him not feeling well".

Boren previously announced he is retiring after 24 years as president on June 30. He went 190-48 at Oklahoma and is the school's wins leader.

After the brief delay, the ceremony went on as planned and the statue honoring Stoops was unveiled. Bud Wilkinson put the University of Oklahoma on the football map.
