De Anza basketball player injured

De Anza High boys basketball player Rishard Williams suffered an apparent concussion during the Dons’ 73-46 loss to El Cerrito Friday night in the Alameda Contra Costa Athletic League.
Williams, a senior guard, hit his head on the court with 2:16 left in the first half.
He left the court on a stretcher and was taken to a nearby hospital, giving a thumb’s up to the crowd, according to El Cerrito assistant coach Raymond Thomas.
Thomas said Williams had some neck pain and was “a little dazed” but was able to move his extremities.
