Davidson loses De’Mon Brooks to a knee injury


Davidson has plenty to worry about after an 85-54 drubbing at the hands of Clemson during Friday’s Charleston Classic semifinals, but now the Wildcats will be without senior forward De’mon Brooks for the near future as the 6-foot-7 forward went down with a knee injury.

According to a story from the AP’s Pete Iacobelli, Brooks left the game in the second half with what appeared to be a left leg injury and he didn’t return to the game. The story goes on to report that Brooks was on crutches after the game and Davidson head coach Bob McKillop is unsure of when he’ll return.

Hopefully, for Davidson, the injury to Brooks isn’t serious as they go through a brutal part of their schedule that included a road loss to Duke to open the season and now the Charleston Classic. Davidson will at least play in the third-place game of the Charleston Classic against New Mexico without Brooks.

Brooks is Davidson’s returning leading scorer at 13.7 points per game and was the preseason SoCon player of the year.
