IU hoops player seriously injured in car accident

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 above 0.02.

"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 accident."

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 Saturday was cancelled due to the incident.
