Injured Hoosier progressing from brain injury

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) Hoosiers coach Tom Crean says Devin Davis is continuing to progress from a traumatic brain injury.

The update came Thursday after Indiana beat Northwood 94-70 in its exhibition opener.

Davis was injured early Saturday morning when one of his teammates, freshman Emmitt Holt, ran into him with a car. According to the police report, Davis jumped in front of the car. The police said both players had been drinking though they are both underage.

Crean says Davis, a sophomore, is undergoing physical and speech recovery. Crean also says Wednesday was a big day for Davis because he was able to take two walks in a Bloomington hospital.

Crean said he and his players were planning to visit Davis after the game.
