Suzy Merchant will remain away from the team indefinitely following a medical incident and car accident late last month. Merchant released a statement Tuesday night, her first public comments since the Jan. 28 accident .”I’m currently focusing on my health and well-being and taking the necessary time to recover,” Merchant said in the statement, released through the basketball program’s Twitter account. “On behalf of my family and myself, we would like to extend our sincerest gratitude to all who have shown support and sent well wishes following my recent car accident and medical episode. The outpouring of love and support from the community has been truly heartwarming and has provided strength and comfort during this difficult time.”
