Devin Davis dresses, participates in warmups #iubb

The gradual return of Devin Davis to the basketball court took another positive step forward on Saturday.

Davis dressed for his first game of the season so that he could participate in pregame warmups with his teammates. It was the first time Davis went through the layup line since suffering a traumatic brain injury after jumping in front of a vehicle driven by teammate Emmitt Holt on Nov. 1.

“That was important to him,” IU coach Tom Crean said. “He wanted a chance to do that. That’s good. He’s really gone through a lot and that was something that he wanted to do.”

It was decided in January that Davis would redshirt this season as he continues his recovery. His decision to dress for Saturday’s game does not impact his redshirt status.
