Davis, sparingly used for most of the season, had one of his best games as a Hoosier in Wednesday's 70-60 loss to Nebraska. He finished with seven points on 3-of-5 shooting, three rebounds and a blocked shot in 15 minutes.
"He did a really nice job, no question about it," Indiana coach Tom Crean said. "Now we just need him to be consistent. That's ben the number one thing of our team. I think we'll be surprised if we don't even feel better about it when we watch the film. He was giving up some size, but he did a really good job.
Even when Vonleh comes back, Davis has likely earned himself some extra minutes in the games to come. Hanner Mosquera-Perea, who played well in Vonleh's absence Sunday against Ohio State, played only 10 minutes and did not score against Nebraska.
"I like how hard he plays," sophomore Yogi Ferrell said. "He hits the offensive glass harder than anyone else. He's not the tallest forward out there, but he carves out space. He's definitely a key player for us."
