UNLV player remains in hospital after concussion

LARAMIE, Wyo. -- UNLV senior forward Sherry McCracklin
remained in the hospital Sunday after hitting her head and
sustaining a concussion during a game against Wyoming the day
before.

"They're just keeping her tonight for routine observation,"
UNLV sports information director Mark Wasik said Sunday afternoon.
"We expect her to be released tomorrow morning."

McCracklin, of Hazel Crest, Ill., was knocked unconscious when
her head hit the floor after she took a charge with 3:48 to go in
Saturday's game.

McCracklin initially got up after the play and walked a few feet
before she collapsed, unconscious. Within a few minutes she started
having a seizure and was taken to Ivinson Memorial Hospital where
she regained consciousness.

Wasik said it was too soon to say when McCracklin might return
to action.

McCracklin scored 17 points in the game, which Wyoming won
53-50.
