The Citadel’s 107-81 loss to the Blue Devils was delayed after Baucom collapsed on the bench and had to be helped off the court. Castle coach Duggar Baucun collapsed on the court shortly after the game against No. 5 Duke on Monday night in Durham, North Carolina. He was reportedly taken to Duke University Hospital for further evaluation.

Baucom, 61, collapsed between the scoring table and bench just 63 seconds into the first half, shortly after they scored the first goal of the game. After he received attention on the sidelines, medical staff helped him off the field and he received more medical help at Cameron Indoor Stadium before being taken to hospital.

This is the video of Dag Baucun after he fell on the court… It’s not a graph, it just shows how sudden it is. He walked away under his own power with the help of others. What a terrible situation. He’s a great guy. I hope everything goes well with him. pic.twitter.com/gyV8fIIHtw

The show was postponed as Pao was evaluated after his breakdown. He staggered off the field, his arm around the paramedics. Associate head coach Jack Casserberry took over in his absence.

In a super scary moment early in the game against Duke, Castle head coach Duggar Baucom appeared to faint and was helped off the court. Pray he is good! 🙏 🏼 @ DanNews2Sports @ WRAL pic.twitter.com/3PJKFt94hv

“He has reached his limit,” Caseberry said at the post-match press conference. “He’s in good spirits.”

In the losing game, the Citadel set a new record of 18 3-pointers, the most ever made by an opponent at Cameron Indoor Stadium. The 81 points were the most duke has scored at home against a non-conference opponent since Illinois scored 83 a season ago.

Baucom, who has coached the Citadel since 2015, is 67-119. He led the team to a 3-1 start in 2021-22, his first winning season at the school.
