Maduka released from hospital

University of Tulsa sophomore forward Kodi Maduka was released from St. Francis Hospital on Tuesday. Maduka collapsed last Wednesday, April 4, in a pick-up basketball game on the TU campus and had remained hospitalized for observation and tests.

The incident occurred approximately 90 minutes after the press conference to introduce Danny Manning as Tulsa's next head basketball coach.

The Maduka family -- Kodi, Charles and Gloria Maduka -- issued the following statement on Tuesday evening:

"Kodi and our family wish to thank the athletic department, the athletic trainers, teammates, coach Manning and his coaching staff for their rapid response that resulted in the Easter miracle that could have been tragic. Kodi is fully recovering and we give all the glory to God for making everything possible.

"The TU family's outpouring of support and prayers are incredible. We thank all of you and the media for their understanding and professionalism."

It is currently unknown how this may affect Maduka's future in athletics, but a decision is expected be made in the near future.
