Along every path to the Final Four there are bound to be a few casualties. On Saturday night, a Louisville cheerleader suffered more than just the heartbreak of her team failing to advance to the championship game. During Kentucky’s 69-61 win over the Cardinals, Jerica Logue was run over by Terrence Jones, who was attempting to chase down a wild pass from Anthony Davis. It was about as brutal a collision as you can have between a player and cheerleader, and it left Logue bloodied and shaken. She needed stitches on the top of her head.
At the time, Jones didn’t know he had injured Logue. After the game, he was all apologies.
“Tell her I’m sorry,” Jones said according to The Dagger. “I’ll drive down there and tell her myself with some flowers or something.”
Logue returned after being stitched up and finished cheering. Louisville could have used her toughness on the court.
