Cal State San Bernardino senior basketball player Jessica De La Cruz remains hospitalized at Loma Linda following a nasty fall in the second half of Saturday’s game against Cal State east bay.
De La Cruz, who had been averaging 5 points and 2.6 assists, took a tumble as teams broke for the other end of the court after an errant East Bay shot. She got bumped by an East Bay player and fell backward, only to hit her head on the knee of another player before htting the court.
She had a seizure which lasted several minutes and was eventually taken out on a stretcher.
Cal State coach Kevin Becker went to see her this afternoon and said she is doing better but more tests will be taken in the next few days. He didn’t want to go into further detail because of student-privacy laws,
De La Cruz is from Northern California but Becker said she did have family in attendance at the game.
