Davis sprains ankle
By Michael Perry
The Cincinnati Enquirer
HATTIESBURG, Miss. Shortly after the final buzzer Saturday, Jamaal Davis walked slowly out of the UC locker room with a bag of ice wrapped around his left ankle.
The junior power forward left the game briefly with 16:17 to go in the first half after teammate Immanuel McElroy collided with Davis and rolled over his ankle.
Davis returned at the 12:01 mark and went on to finish with four points and six rebounds in 27 minutes in UC's 64-52 victory at Southern Mississippi.
It's just real sore, he said. They kept piling and piling tape on it. It's really hard to push off on it.
Trainer Jayd Grossman said Davis suffered a sprain and would be re-evaluated today.
NOTABLE NUMBER: Sophomore Kenny Satterfield was 3-of-6 from 3-point range. He had not hit that many 3s in a game since Jan.6 against Charlotte. After going 3-of-20 from 3-point range over an eight-game stretch, Satterfield has gone 5-of-11 the past two games.
CHASING KENYON: Sophomore center Donald Little was credited with one blocked shot Saturday, ending his streak of games with multiple blocks at 12. Kenyon Martin blocked at least two shots in 13 consecutive games last season.
DEE-FENSE: David Wall, Southern Mississippi's leading scorer (14.7 ppg), was held to just seven points on 2-of-7 shooting. McElroy and Leonard Stokes spent most of the afternoon defending Wall.
They've been doing it all year, UC coach Bob Huggins said. They're both long and they're both athletic.
ACADEMIC HONORS: Five of the 10 UC players on scholarship were honored this past week by the school for being Bearcat Scholar-Athletes, meaning they had grade-point averages between 3.0-3.5. They are Satterfield, Stokes, McElroy and freshmen Field Williams and Rod Flowers.
FAMILIAR FACE: Former Bearcat Jermaine Tate stopped by to work out with the Bearcats this week. He has played in Cyprus and Argentina since last fall and may return to Argentina or pursue an opportunity in Turkey.
