Dan Alon, the first-year head coach of the Golden Valley boys basketball team, collapsed with chest pains during halftime of the Grizzlies game against Hart Tuesday.
Alon was taken by ambulance to Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital. He was released Wednesday morning and is now resting at home.
“I had chest pain and pain in my left arm,” Alon said from his home Tuesday. “I started feeling light headed.”
Though more tests are scheduled, Alon’s doctor has released him to go back to work and resume coaching Thursday.
The Indians (16-2, 3-0 in the Foothill League) opened up a 52-23 halftime lead over Golden Valley (7-10, 0-3). When the teams came back on the floor to begin the second half, the Grizzlies bench was noticably emotional and the coaches were absent.
The game was delayed 15 minutes while coaches and administrators from both teams attended to Alon in the visitors locker room.
Once the game resumed the Indians, which got scoring from 12 different players, went on to win 84-61. Myles Franklin led Hart with 13 points.
As a team, the Indians shot 83% (24-of-29) from the free throw line.
