Top-ranked Kentucky destroyed Kansas, 72-40, and, really, it wasn’t as close as the final score suggests. A 32-point beatdown is not the ideal way for a college basketball powerhouse to get on the right track.
Jayhawks coach Bill Self was understandably distraught after the loss. After taking a big swig of water at his postgame press conference, he quipped that he’d rather be guzzling vodka.
Indiana sophomore forward Devin Davis is in serious condition after a car accident involving teammate Emmitt Holt, the school announced. Davis was on foot and walked into the road shortly after being dropped off by Holt at Memorial Stadium early this morning.
Sgt. Jeffery Canada says Holt and passengers in his SUV told police they had dropped Davis off in the parking lot outside the stadium about 12:45 a.m. Saturday.
Canada says Holt was driving away when Davis suddenly entered the roadway for unknown reasons and collided with the vehicle. Police found Davis unconscious with a head injury.
Holt was issued citations for misdemeanor illegal consumption of alcohol and cited for being under age 21 and operating a vehicle with a blood alcohol content above 0.02.
Davis averaged 2.4 points per game in 29 games for the Hoosiers last season.
