Aggies' Roberson treated after heart rate issue

COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) - Texas A&M basketball player Kourtney Roberson has undergone a procedure at a hospital after experiencing a rapid heart rate during practice.

The school said in a news release that Roberson underwent an outpatient procedure Thursday at Scott & White Hospital in College Station.

The team says the junior from Arcadia, La., is expected to resume basketball activities in "the coming weeks." Roberson had the procedure after he was evaluated by the team's medical staff when the issue arose in practice Monday.

The 6-foot-9 forward averaged 6.9 points and 6.6 rebounds last season, starting 32 of 33 games. Roberson took a redshirt year the previous season after appearing in nine games before breaking an ankle.

The Aggies open the season Nov. 8 at home against Buffalo.
