South Carolina basketball Coach Bill Foster remained in stable condition after suffering what doctors called a "moderate heart attack" following his team's upset victory over Purdue Saturday night.
"He spent a good night. His pulse and blood pressure and EKG are steady. He is very comfortable with no physical complaints whatsoever," said Foster's wife Shirley. "I talked with three doctors this morning and everyone is pleased with his progress."
There was no change in the doctors' prognosis that Foster could be in the hospital two or three weeks . . .
Air Force running back Derek Foster was clinging to life after an automobile accident, but hospital authorities said he was not responding and remained in critical condition. "He is not responsive at all," said nursing supervisor Sharon Costantini, adding that Foster's condition had not changed since he arrived at Penrose Hospital Friday morning. A nursing spokesperson said late last night that Foster remained unconscious.
Foster received major head injuries when the car he was driving hit an icy patch of road and struck a tree on the Air Force Academy grounds. He was alone in the car. The 20-year-old junior had become a starter midway through this season.
