Bloomington, IN (SportsNetwork.com) – Indiana men’s basketball player Devin
Davis is in serious condition in a campus hospital after being struck by a
teammate’s car early Saturday morning.
According to Bloomington police, Davis was out with freshman Emmitt Holt and
unexpectedly entered the street after being dropped off by Holt in the parking
lot of Memorial Stadium, the Hoosiers’ football venue. The sophomore forward
was subsequently hit by Holt’s 2012 Jeep Liberty and knocked unconscious.
Davis was later transported to IU Health Bloomington Hospital with a head
injury. Police did not reveal whether or not the 19-yard-out had regained
consciousness at the scene of the accident.
Holt was found to have a blood alcohol level of 0.025 and was cited for
illegal consumption of alcohol by a minor and operating a vehicle with a BAC
“First and foremost, our thoughts are with Devin and his family and we pray
that his condition improves in the coming days,” Hoosiers head coach Tom Crean
said in a statement. “An injury to one of us is an injury to all of us and we
are devastated by the news. We will continue to support Devin and Emmitt in
every possible way and I know the Hoosier family will come together to rally
for these young men. We are working to gather additional information on the
Davis played in 29 games with one start as a freshman for the Hoosiers last
season, averaging 2.4 points, 2.6 rebounds and 8.8 minutes.
A team practice and scrimmage open to the public that had been scheduled for
