    I think this deserves it's own thread. Let's pray for a quick and full recovery for Shavon - basketball or no basketball.

    I really hope Shields can make a full recovery.

    Shavon is Nebrasketball. Doesn't get better than that upstanding young man.

    First time I have ever got misty at a game.

    Man that was scary, just got home from some youth basketball games turned the TV on to Shavon lying on the court, couldn't watch the replays, just so scared, only thing I can remember of recent to that situation was Zach Darlington getting knocked out in his high school game that was shown on ESPN right after he committed

    So glad Shavon has movement, thoughts n prayers for his recovery

     Remarks from Nebraska Head Coach Tim Miles and Men’s Basketball Athletic Trainer R.J. Pietig after today’s game with Rutgers regarding Nebraska forward Shavon Shields, who was carted off the court midway through the second half of today’s game with Rutgers and taken to a local hospital.

     

    R.J. Pietig: Shavon Shields is at the emergency room right now, he’s about to start further testing. (It is) kind of the same status as when he left Pinnacle Bank Arena. He’s alert, he’s awake, has sensation in his hands and in his feet, and I guess at this time we don’t know too much other than we’ll be going for further testing and we just have to wait to see what comes from those.”

     

    Did he lose consciousness?

    Pietig: Yes he did. He was out roughly a minute, because when I got to the floor he was unconscious and once coach got there and Dr. (David) Clare arrived he came back to within a few seconds.

    Coach Miles: He didn’t recall anything that had happened.

     

    Was that his mom (who came out to the court)?

    Coach Miles: Yes, I asked his mom (Senia) to come out.

     

    He could move his arms and legs?

    Pietig: Yes, he had movement and sensation in his arms and his legs.

     

    On the court?

    Pietig: On the court, as well as off the court.

    Coach Miles: He didn’t move because we told him not to move, so he was just following directions. Obviously, you want to take as much precaution as you can in that situation so some people are like “he didn’t move, he didn’t move” well that’s because he was just following directions and it was for his welfare.

    Update on Shavon Shields
    Shavon Shields was conscious on his way to the hospital. He had a CT scan, which was negative.  Shavon will follow UNL's concussion protocol. He has been dismissed from the hospital.

     

    Quote from Nebraska Coach Tim Miles
    “We are relieved and thankful Shavon has been released, and that his injuries aren’t more serious. We will follow the proper protocol to get him back to full speed. I know Shavon and his family are grateful for everyone’s thoughts and prayers.”

    This was the scariest thing I've seen at a sporting event. So glad he's doing okay so far.

    Is there an audio clip out of Kent and Matt? I feel like if they would have been talking while Shavon was down, I would have heard them.

    I was listening while on the road. I have never heard Kent so disinterested in a Husker game following that incident. You could really tell it was weighing on him. The crowd was absolutely silent. I was like wow this is serious. I think Matt and Kent had their voice crack as well.

    The last time I saw a fall like that, Jake M. ended up with a broken hip...

     

    Whew.

    That was at Kansas.  I've been looking for a tape of that game for a long time...

    I heard them. That was pretty eerie being so silent and the only thing I heard was Kent's voice. From across the arena. And I know he wasn't talking that loudly.

    I didn't hear Kent and Matt, I did hear the Rutgers guys, though.

    if shields misses wednesday's game, will that be the first game anyone has missed due to injury?

     

    that's pretty amazing to go 3/4 of the season completely healthy.

     

    i know hammond/morrow were banged up, but i think they have been able to play in every game if needed.

     

    also kind of sad our record isn't better given we've been at full strength the whole season.

    How many games has he missed in his career let alone in this season? He's been a remarkably healthy young man. Wish and pray for a speedy recovery and NOT just so he can get back out on the floor again.

    I'm not sure what the "concussion protocol" entails but he shouldn't play Wednesday. Maybe by Saturday if given an ok by a neurologist. Doubt he will play with the same abandon for a couple of weeks but if boxers resume sparring after a ko, then he should be fine. Multiple concussions are a different story so if he has had them in the past, it may be longer before he is released. The important thing is to not rush him back too soon. My thoughts and prayers for him and family join everyone on this board who has preceded me.

    After watching it several times, I think he'll be fine.  Just got a little dinged.  Good to react as if worst case, but the shoulder takes first contact.  I wouldn't expect Wed return, but he'll be back after that.  The school has to be extra careful and will surely hold him out for a game.
