Mercer’s Player Can’t Remember Duke Game Because of Concussion
Duke’s upset in the NCAA tournament by 14th seeded Mercer Bears in their first NCAA Tournament win was one of the biggest moments in this year’s NCAA tournament. Unfortunately, for the Bears center Monty Brown does not remember the win at all.
The 6-foot-11 senior suffered a concussion late in the first half and “doesn’t remember (the) game at all,” according to TBS reporter Rachel Nichols. She tweeted that he’s “staying in (a) dark room” and will miss Sunday’s game against No. 11 Tennessee.
While Coach Bob Hoffman confirmed Nichols’ account he said that Brown ”hasn’t been completely ruled out but it doesn’t look good.”
Mercer C Monty Brown will miss Bears’ game vs Tenn due to concussion suffered vs Duke. Staying in dark room; doesn’t remember game at all.
