Sophomore guard Kedrick Flomo underwent emergency heart surgery Monday night at Vanderbilt Medical Center in Nashville.

“We had a very scary situation with him (Flomo) yesterday,” said Head Coach Matt McMahon. “A situation that required him to be transferred to Vanderbilt for emergency heart surgery.”

McMahon said he will not be able to play in the 2015-16 season but their number one priority is Flomo’s health and recovery.

McMahon said he spent time with Flomo and his family last night and will return tonight to check on his progression and doctors expect him to make a full recovery. According to a press release, Flomo has been moved out of ICU and is alert and eating.

Flomo came to Murray State from North Forsyth High School in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. As a freshman, he played in 29 games, contributed 30 assists and 10 steals while averaging 10 minutes per game.
