Season Ends Prematurely For Davis
It wasn't supposed to end like this. Rochester (MI) High's Paul Davis was supposed to end his high school career on a high note by playing in the McDonald's All-American Game. Well, he's been selected to the game, but won't be able to participate.
In the middle of February, Davis broke his ankle in a game. He was working on big night before the setback. The injury occurred in the third quarter when he had 32 points and a dozen rebounds. Prior to the injury, he was averaging 29 points, 13 rebounds, 3 blocks and was shooting 55% from the field. By all accounts, he was having an incredible year.
"He had the surgery and it went good," Rochester coach Hal Commerson said. "They put a couple of screws in to make sure those bones knit properly."
Soon, Davis can begin the rehabilitation process and then he's got an aggressive schedule to get himself ready for Michigan State. In fact, he's going to work out with the Detroit Pistons.
