Hours after LSU’s 66-49 victory over Connecticut – Glen Davis, Tiger forward, was involved in a car accident early Sunday morning and taken to Baton Rouge Hospital.
LSU coach John Brady said Davis was released from the hospital Sunday morning and would be able to participate in a no-contact walkthrough Sunday night to prepare for LSU’s Southeastern Conference opener in Alabama on Tuesday night.
“Davis is a little sore and banged up, but he should be ready to play by Tuesday,” Brady said. “He was very lucky.”
Davis left the Pete Maravich Assembly Center late Saturday and was driving to get something to eat when his car was broadsided by another driver who apparently ran a stop sign. The impact was severe enough to trigger Davis driver-side air bag. Davis was alone in the vehicle, said Brady.
Davis, who turned 21 on New Year’s Day, was put through a series of tests, X-rays and a CAT scan, none that revealed serious damage. Doctors told Brady that Davis’s right side, ribs and knees will be sore. Just like anyone else who is jostled around in an accident. Davis biggest concern, Brady said, was making sure he could play Tuesday when the No. 14 Tigers travel to Tuscaloosa to face eighth-ranked Alabama.
