RENO, Nev. (KOLO) Wolf Pack freshman Josh Hall has been diagnosed with a concussion that he suffered during Nevada's 80-55 win over San Jose State on Wednesday night.

Head coach Eric Musselman released this statement on Thursday as an update on Hall's situation.

"After last night's very scary injury, Josh was taken to the hospital. Prior to getting in the ambulance, he became alert and was responding to questions from medical personnel. Later in the night, Josh was diagnosed with a concussion and was released from the hospital. He's a great kid, and I speak for everyone in the Nevada basketball family when I say we hope he has a speedy and full recovery. We'd like to thank everyone for their concern and support last night and today."

Hall was injured when he was taken out during a dunk attempt late in the first half.

San Jose State's Brandon Mitchell fouled him, causing Hall to fall awkwardly, landing on his neck and shoulders area. Mitchell was called for a foul, but not a flagrant.

A look at the replay showed that Mitchell made contact with the ball first, blocking the shot with the momentum carrying his body into Hall's in mid-air.

The Wolf Pack (12-2, 1-0 MWC) play at Fresno State (8-5, 0-1 MWC) on Saturday. The game will be shown live on ESPN3.
