A university spokesman says Mississippi State basketball coach Rick Stansbury is hospitalized in Tupelo for tests after complaining of severe migraines and flu-like symptoms.
Gregg Ellis of MSU media relations says the 48-year-old Stansbury became ill Sunday night and initially was admitted to Oktibbeha County Hospital. He says the coach received a shot at the hospital that provided some relief.
Ellis says Stansbury was moved Monday morning to Northeast Mississippi Medical Center in Tupelo, a larger hospital, for precautionary reasons. Ellis says more tests were planned "to make sure this is nothing more than a virus.''
