Indiana’s Devin Davis is improving in the hospital


Spending the night in the hospital has improved the condition of Indiana sophomore forward Devin Davis, according to a release from the school.

Davis’ doctor, Dr. Larry Rink, made a statement in the release to update that Davis is doing better:

“I am glad to report that Devin is doing better this morning and has benefited from uninterrupted rest. His speech in normal and he has the use of all extremities.

“Devin is being cared for by the best medical team and the support from his family, friends, and teammates has been incredible.”

Indiana head coach Tom Crean also made a statement in the release.

“Too often in life, we all take for granted the simple tasks of opening our eyes, processing thoughts and putting a simple sentence together. In our program , we routinely emphasize to our players that everything matters and watching Devin improve just over the last 36 hours has furthered our belief in that approach.

“On behalf of the Davis Family and the IU men’s basketball program, we appreciate the concern, calls, texts, and thoughts and prayers we have received. We are especially grateful for every doctor, nurse, and staff member at IU Health Bloomington Hospital. We look forward to his continued recovery.”

It’s great to hear that Davis is doing better after being listed in serious condition yesterday.

Davis was injured late Friday night when he was hit by the vehicle of teammate and freshman forward Emmitt Holt. The incident is being ruled an accident after Davis went into the road and Holt could not avoid hitting him on the front passenger side of his vehicle. Police found Davis unconscious and he was taken via ambulance to IU Health Bloomington Hospital. Holt was cited for illegal consumption and operating a vehicle with a BAC above 0.02.
