When you are involved in an epic sporting event of any kind, you talk about sharing the memories with your grandchildren and their kids, but Mercer Bears center Monty Brown may not even be able to do that.
Brown hit his head against the knee of Duke Blue Devils player Jabari Parker late in the first half of the Bears tremendous upset of the highly-favored Duke team, and he can’t remember a thing about the the game of the tournament so far.
According to FoxSports.com, the 6-foot-11 senior told TBS reporter Rachel Nichols that he can’t remember the game at all. She tweeted that he’s “staying in (a) dark room” and will miss Sunday’s game against No. 11 seed Tennessee.
Mercer C Monty Brown will miss Bears’ game vs Tenn due to concussion suffered vs Duke. Staying in dark room; doesn’t remember game at all.

Mercer University is an 8,300-student school in Macon, Ga., a smaller city about 85 mile southeast of Atlanta. The Bears qualified for their first NCAA tournament since 1985.
Against a team with Tennessee’s size and strength, Mercer will miss their big man.
