When a player goes down, like Willis McGahee did last week, it’s hard not to imagine the worst. Concussion? Shattered facial bones? Paralysis? All awful things, but no one ever considers one injury that could be worse than all of them.
Kayla Hutcheson is a freshman at Walla Walla Community College. While scrambling for a loose ball in October, she collided with another player. At first it seemed like nothing serious — a bloody nose and a possible concussion. But Hutcheson’s roommates quickly noticed something was wrong - she couldn’t remember who they were.
