Oakland F Nelson leaves game with cut over eye

BY foxsports • March 19, 2010

Oakland forward Derick Nelson returned to start the second half after a gash over his left eye forced him to leave the game against Pittsburgh.

With about 10 minutes remaining in the opening half of Friday's first-round NCAA tournament game, Panthers center Gary McGhee appeared to inadvertently hit Nelson with an elbow after McGhee was fouled in the act of shooting, leaving blood trickling from the cut. Nelson spent several minutes on the floor before getting up and walking to the locker room, escorted by trainers.

Nelson is a starter for the Golden Grizzlies, averaging 12.4 points per game.
