Early Saturday morning, an accident occurred on the Indiana University campus involving two of the school’s basketball players, the fifth alcohol-related incident involving IU basketball players this year.

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.”

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. And junior forward Hanner Mosquera-Perea was arrested in Bloomington in February on preliminary drunk driving charges.

Indiana opens the season Nov. 6 in an exhibition on Nov. 6 against Northwood University in Bloomington.
