Davis speaking normally, has use of all extremities

Devin Davis is speaking normally and has use of all extremities, according to a press release issued by Indiana on Sunday.

IU team doctor Larry Rink said Davis’ condition has improved after the sophomore forward was struck by a car driven by teammate Emmitt Holt early Saturday morning.

“I am glad to report that Devin is doing better this morning and has benefited from uninterrupted rest,” IU team doctor Larry Rink said in the release. “Devin is being cared for by the best medical team and the support from his family, friends, and teammates has been incredible.”

As of Saturday, Davis was listed in serious condition at IU Health Bloomington Hospital. The hospital could not provide any further updates on Davis’ condition Sunday morning.

“Too often in life, we all take for granted the simple tasks of opening our eyes, processing thoughts and putting a simple sentence together,” IU coach Tom Crean said in a statement. “In our program, we routinely emphasize to our players that everything matters and watching Devin improve just over the last 36 hours has furthered our belief in that approach.

“On behalf of the Davis Family and the IU men’s basketball program, we appreciate the concern, calls, texts, and thoughts and prayers we have received. We are especially grateful for every doctor, nurse, and staff member at IU Health Bloomington Hospital. We look forward to his continued recovery.”

  1. Great pic and support for Devin. Is Emmit in that pic? I assume he would be suspended indefinitely from team activies, until the story and investigation is sorted out.
