WSU’s Cameron Fernandez stretchered off court

Last night, a scary scene took place during the first quarter of a Washington State vs. Arizona State women’s basketball game.

Freshman Cameron Fernandez banged her head against the court while trying to draw a charge in the losing effort. She was taken to the hospital as a precautionary measure and is expected to make a full recovery.

Fernandez left the court on a stretcher.

Her absence would be missed for the Cougars team, as they would lose to Arizona State 68-49 and struggled to find any kind of rhythm offensively.

Fernandez, who is a 5-foot-10 sharpshooting guard from Makawao, Hawaii. was a standout star at Lahainaluna High School and is off to a good start for her collegiate career.

There was a noticeable shift in the attitude of the fans, which was mostly students, over Fernandez well-being. With her status now mostly in the clear and her expected to return to the team quickly, the Cougars can reshift their focus to winning basketball games.
