UTEP men's basketball coach Rodney Terry was hospitalized in Miami in critical condition but is expected to make a full recovery according to the university.

A statement issued by the university on Thursday said Terry was taken to the hospital on Wednesday night suffering from anaphylactic shock caused by an allergic reaction.

"Medical officials say he is in critical but stable condition and is expected to make a full recovery," the statement read. "There is no timetable for his return to the UTEP bench."

The team was in Miami to meet Florida International on Thursday in the Conference USA opener, a 69-67 loss. The Miners (9-5, 0-1) were led by assistant coach Kenton Paulino.

Paulino said he spoke with Terry, who is eager to return to the team.

"He really wanted to be here," Paulino said in a post-game radio interview. "He's doing much, much better. They want to hold him a certain period of time, but he's ready to get back."

Terry, a Texas native, is in his second season at UTEP; the Miners were 8-21 (3-15) in his first season. He was the head coach at Fresno State (2011-18), where he led the Bulldogs to a 126-108 record and a berth in the 2016 NCAA Tournament.

The 51-year-old was an assistant coach at Baylor (1996-98), UNC Wilmington (1998-02) and Texas (2002-11) before moving on to Fresno State.
