Clemson G Mitchell returns to campus, in concussion protocol
CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) — Clemson point guard Shelton Mitchell has returned to campus and is in the concussion protocol after spending a night in a Florida hospital after he got hit in the head late in the 11th-ranked Tigers 81-79 overtime loss to Florida State.
The school said Thursday that Mitchell returned safely. His condition would be updated by Tigers coach Brad Brownell on Friday.
Mitchell played 31 minutes against the Seminoles and was driving to the basket in overtime when it appeared he got hit in the head by an elbow of a Florida State defender. Mitchell attempted to get up before collapsing back to the floor. He was eventually carried off the court.
The 6-foot-1 Mitchell has started all 25 games for Clemson (20-5) this season. The Tigers face No. 12 Duke on Sunday.
