2:29PM EST October 9. 2012 - ESPN college basketball analyst Len Elmore, 60, was being treated by District of Columbia paramedics Tuesday morning after collapsing during a session of The Knight Commission on Intercollegiate Athletics.

Elmore, a former NBA player and star at the University of Maryland, is also a member of the Knight Commission.

The commission was meeting at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in downtown D.C. Elmore collapsed toward the end of a question-and-answer session. William Asbury, another member of the commission and a former administrator at Penn State, alerted the room to Elmore's condition.

He collapsed around 11:30 a.m. ET but was seen back on his feet about 15 minutes later and the paramedics finished seeing to him. Elmore left the room a couple of minutes later accompanied by Amy Perko, executive director of the Knight Commission.

Gerald Turner, co-chair of the commission and president of Southern Methodist University, said Elmore was going to a room at the hotel. Turner said Elmore had said he'd experienced similar episodes that are related to an ongoing health issue that Turner did not specify.

At about 1:45 p.m. ET, Perko said that Elmore was "fine."

Elmore played for five teams in the NBA from 1974-84. He earned a a law degree at Harvard and also has been a player agent.
