Per IU Athletics, IU men’s basketball sophomore center De’Ron Davis, who has started the first 15 games for the Hoosiers this season, underwent surgery today to repair a torn achilles tendon in his right leg and will miss the remainder of the season.
He was fourth in the big Ten in field goal percentage shooting 61.5%. He averaged 9.6 points and 4.3 rebounds.
The Hoosiers will now have to embrace their next man up mentality even more without Davis in the lineup for the rest of the year. Players such as freshman forward Justin Smith and senior forward Collin Hartman have already made an impact on the team with Davis out.
