Washington sophomore Brendan Sherrer has been hospitalized and is being treated at Harborview Medical Center.
According to a family friend, Sherrer felt sick Tuesday morning with flu-like symptoms. He attended practice and his conditioned worsened.
He was taken to Harborview where he has undergone a battery of tests. His condition has improved since Tuesday evening, but the cause of his ailment is unknown.
A Washington spokesman declined comment this morning.
Coach Lorenzo Romar is expected to meet with the media before an afternoon practice today and may provide more details.
Sherrer, a 6-foot-9, 240-pound forward from Archbishop Murphy High in Everett, was one of 8-10 UW students who participated in a tryout before the season and added to the roster as a non-scholarship walk-on.
Sherrer was a member of the Dawg Pack, UW’s student section, and is a fan favorite.
He was nicknamed the ‘Human Victory Cigar’ because his appearance usually signifies a UW win. Sherrer has appeared in nine games. He’s scored four points and has one rebound.
