This comes following a scary incident in which Merchant fainted on the court a few weeks back. Merchant said she experienced similar conditions during MSU’s past game against Rutgers and stayed in New Jersey after the game for further testing. There is no time table for her return.
From all of us here at The Only Colors, we wish Coach Merchant a speedy recovery and hope to see her back on the court soon!
