High Point's Chaney will not play again following defibrillator scare
HIGH POINT, N.C. (AP)
The school made the announcement Friday night, less than two weeks after Chaney collapsed during a game.
Chaney had a wireless implantable defibrillator installed by doctors after he was diagnosed with viral myocarditis -- an inflammation of the heart.
When the defibrillator activated Nov. 24 during a game against Wofford, Chaney collapsed but was determined to be OK. After that scare, doctors advised him not to resume his playing career.
Chaney played at Florida in 2008 before transferring to Virginia Tech, but he sat out three seasons and never played for the Hokies because of the condition.
He averaged 14.9 points and 7.9 rebounds last season as a graduate student at High Point.
