Teammate hits, injures Davis
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) — An Indiana basketball spokesman says sophomore Devin Davis is in serious condition after being hit by a car driven by freshman Emmitt Holt.
Senior assistant athletic director J.D. Campbell said in a news release that Davis was hit early Saturday morning just after exiting the vehicle on the Indiana University campus and was taken to IU Health Bloomington Hospital.
The release, which cites preliminary information, said Holt was cited for illegal consumption and operating a vehicle with a blood alcohol content above 0.02. Campbell said Holt’s BAC was 0.025. No further details were provided.
Coach Tom Crean said in the statement that his “thoughts are with Devin and his family.”
“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,” Crean said, adding, “We are working to gather additional information on the accident.”
Davis is a 6-foot-7 forward from Indianapolis. Holt is a 6-foot-7 forward from Webster, New York.
In September, junior guard Yogi Ferrell and sophomore guard Stanford Robinson entered pretrial diversion programs after being charged in April with consumption of an alcoholic beverage by a minor and possession of false identification.
Indiana opens the season Nov. 14 against Mississippi Valley State.
