Preliminary information indicates sophomore Devin Davis is in serious condition after being hit by a car driven by freshman Emmitt Holt, who registered a blood alcohol concentration of 0.025, according to a news release. He was cited for illegal consumption 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,” Indiana coach Tom Crean said. “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 averaged 2.4 points and 2.6 rebounds over 29 games last season. The Indianapolis native started two of the Hoosiers' five games during their offseason trip to Canada, posting team highs in rebounds (7.6) and field goal percentage (77.8).
Holt committed to the Hoosiers in August. He averaged 19.8 points and 14.6 rebounds in his final season at Webster Schroeder (NY) High School and received a three-star rating from the recruiting website Rivals.com.
Indiana still plans to hold its Haunted Hall of Hoops but has postponed a planned open practice and scrimmage.
