LAS VEGAS — Indiana women's basketball coach Teri Moren said she was considering not playing Memphis at Saturday night's Las Vegas Invitational because paramedics weren't on hand to attend to an injured Auburn player in the previous game .
Auburn freshman Kharyssa Richardson fell hard with four minutes left against Colorado State and appeared to hit her head. It took EMT staff 50 minutes to arrive at The Mirage on the Las Vegas Strip, delaying the Indiana-Memphis games by nearly 90 minutes.
Adding to the injury delay, there was no security for Friday's action and fans were seated in folding chairs rather than in stands on both days. Moren said she had no problem with the quality of the playing surface or with the event being held in a resort ballroom.

She said she received an apology from site coordinator Ryan Polk, who declined to comment.
"I think there are other people who probably also need to apologize for wanting us to come and play at this event," Moren said. "It wasn't described to us like what the venue would look like, what the facility would look like."
Auburn's Richardson was eventually pulled off the field and taken to a Las Vegas hospital. Auburn later tweeted that she was vigilant, and a team spokesman said he had no further update. Polk said Richardson moved her hands and feet. Auburn won 74-73.
Moren said she spoke with Indiana athletic director Scott Dolson during the long layoff, but decided the game was safe enough and wanted to complete the task at hand. The sixth-ranked Hoosiers beat Memphis 79-64.

"It's not a fan-friendly environment," Moren said. "As I told the site coordinator, as women's basketball coaches, we try to push our game forward. It felt like we took a few steps back in that moment because there were so many ticks on social (media) and I shared that with the site coordinator. We have an obligation to expand our game and we completely missed that opportunity because you have a lot of really good teams here.
In November, John Gallagher resigned as coach of the Hartford men's basketball team, citing concerns about player safety.
