DALLAS — The national champion LSU women’s basketball team was honored at the White House on Friday, but President Joe Biden had to pause his remarks for several minutes after former DeSoto (Texas) star Sa’Myah Smith collapsed onstage.

ESPN reported that medical personnel were rushed into the East Room after Smith fainted while Biden called for year-round support for women’s sports. Smith, who was standing in the risers behind the podium, slunk downward and was helped off the stage.
