Wright State freshman forward Ryan Custer was taken to the hospital in critical condition and underwent a five-hour surgery over the weekend after suffering a traumatic head and neck injury on Saturday afternoon.

The injury was suffered when Custer either fall or was pushed into a makeshift pool, made of bales of hay and a blue tarp with a slide, at a party in Oxford, Ohio, when the Miami (OH) campus is located.

Custer underwent a five-hour surgery early Sunday morning.

The 6-foot-7 Custer averaged 2.2 points in just under 10 minutes a night as a freshman.
