Indiana Hoosier Basketball Player Injured In Accident by Teammate


Devin Davis, a sophomore basketball player at Indiana University is in serious condition in a Bloomington, IN hospital after an early Saturday morning accident with a car.

Davis, according to reports, was injured by a car driven by teammate Emmit Holt as Davis was getting out of Holt's car.

No indication yet as to how Davis was so seriously hurt from an apparently slow-moving car. Holt was given a blood-alcohol test on the scene and charged with illegal consumption and operating a vehicle with a B.A.C of over .02. (.025).

Hoosier head coach Tom Crean spent the early morning with Davis at the hospital and the University has cancelled it's open practice and scrimmage, along with their annual Haunted Hall of Hoops event.

Here's the press release from the school:

  "Early this morning, an accident occurred on the Indiana University campus involving two of the school’s basketball players.  Based on preliminary information, sophomore Devin Davis was injured after being struck by a vehicle driven by teammate freshman Emmitt Holt, just moments after exiting that vehicle.  Davis was taken to IU Health Bloomington Hospital and is currently in serious condition. Holt was cited for illegal consumption and operating a vehicle with a BAC above 0.02.   Holt had a BAC of 0.025.     “First and foremost, our thoughts are with Devin and his family and we pray that his condition improves in the coming days,” said IU Coach Tom Crean.  “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.”
