Anna Wilson, sister of Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, is doing well after a big scare in Honolulu.
The Stanford University junior guard fell backward and suffered an injury during the Cardinal’s 81-52 victory over host University of Hawaii on Sunday, Nov. 25.
Wilson’s neck was immobilized and she was carried off the floor on a gurney. The game was delayed about 20 minutes while she was being treated.
Anna’s mother, Tammy Wilson, was at the game and rushed to the court to console her daughter.
To the relief of all, the hospital scan came back clear and Wilson was able to fly back to California with the team. She is expected to be back in uniform when Stanford plays its next game Sunday, Dec. 2, at Gonzaga University.
Wilson grew up in Western Henrico County and starred in basketball at Collegiate School. She completed her senior year at Bellevue High near Seattle.
Stanford is 6-0 and ranked No. 10 in the nation. Wilson averages four points and three rebounds this season with the team.
