Seattle University’s leading scorer, Bernard Seals, was taken away in an ambulance during the Redhawks’ 69-66 loss to Warner Pacific last night at Connolly Center.


Less than four minutes into the game, Seals attempted to block a breakaway layup from behind on Warner Pacific’s Josh Jackson.


Seals pinned the ball to the backboard, resulting in a goaltending call, but he fell to the floor awkwardly and was motionless.


An ambulance was called while Seals remained in the same position for nearly 30 minutes before he was taken away by paramedics.


Seals went into the game averaging 15.5 points per game.


Jeffrey McDaniel led all Seattle (3-4) players with 17 points and 10 rebounds. Ryan Webb and Bim Makinde each contributed 15 points.


Warner Pacific (7-2) was led by Jeff Eischen with 18 points.
