"When something like that happens you really don't know what you would do in that kind of situation," Ghent said. "If it happened to me I'd probably still go ahead and play because I know that's what my family members would want me to do."
Kerry Rhodes, a personal friend of Garcia's, said he could relate to what Garcia is going through and is concerned about his friend and his family during their time of such emotional loss.
"Francisco and I are pretty good friends," Rhodes said. "It's hard to think about something like that because my aunt was in a car accident back home this season but she turned out to be OK. And her just being in a wreck was pretty hard for me."
"With him losing his brother I don't really know how to react ot it," Rhodes said. "He's handling it pretty well and he's going to play tonight. I just hope that everything goes well with his family. I haven't talked to him yet and I don't know what to say to him."
"I just want to give him time to heal," Rhodes continued. "I'll talk to him before the game. All I can say is 'I'm sorry' and that I hope everything goes good and he can put it behind him."
