LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- Michigan State forward Aisha Jefferson spent portions of the first half of Saturday's opening round game of the women's NCAA tournament against Bowling Green sitting at the end of the bench with a trash can in front of her, nauseous from a pregame meal that didn't sit right.It's just part of the deal for Jefferson, who has been battling stomach issues for much of her career."I got a lot of Mylanta," Jefferson said with a laugh.Besides, a little stomach issue wasn't going to keep the fifth-year senior from playing in her final NCAA tournament.
At one point of the first half, Aisha Jefferson was huddled over a trash can. But despite her upset stomach, Jefferson put in one of her most complete games of the season to lift Michigan State past Bowling Green. Story
