Tide Basketball Player Has Surgery

University of Alabama men's basketball student-athlete Charvez Davis underwent successful surgery to repair a hernia on Monday and will be out indefinitely until cleared by a physician to return to practice.

Charvez Davis suffered the injury in practice last week and the procedure was performed by Dr. Andrew Harrell in Tuscaloosa.

"Our entire team is supporting Charvez as he recuperates from Monday's surgery," Alabama Coach Anthony Grant said. "We expect him to make a full recovery and anticipate him rejoining his teammates in the near future once he has been cleared by our medical staff."

A senior guard from Montgomery, Davis is one of the top returning three-point shooters in the Southeastern Conference after converting on 41 per cent of his attempts in 2009-10 and appearing in all 32 games.
