EAST LANSING, Mich. (LANSING STATE JOURNAL) - Taylor Young, the Michigan State cheerleader who took a hard spill during MSU's basketball win Wednesday at Breslin Center, is fine and out of the hospital.
MSU associate athletic director John Lewandowski confirmed that Young was discharged from Sparrow Hospital early this morning.
MSU athletic director Mark Hollis said in a text message that Young is "all good" after a scary few moments Wednesday evening.
The 20-year-old junior from Twin Lake fell on her face during a timeout in the first half of the Spartans' win over Florida State. She was motionless for a few minutes before medical personnel carefully lifted her to a stretcher.
Young was able to smile and give two thumbs up as she was wheeled off the court.
Well wishes for Young have poured in over social media and LSJ.com.

What a glorious sight when she gave two thumbs up and a HUGE smile from the gurney! So very happy to know she's going to be all right. God be with her and her family! GO GREEN, GO TAYLOR! GO SPARTANS!"
