Guard Cade Davis Suffers Facial Fracture

NORMAN, Okla. -- Oklahoma head men's basketball coach Jeff Capel said today that senior guard Cade Davis sustained a facial fracture during a recent team skill workout.

Capel said the injury, which occurred last Friday, will not require surgery and that Davis is expected to make a full recovery in four to six weeks. In fact, Davis has already been cleared for conditioning and shooting drills that do not require contact.

Davis may wear a protective mask for a period of time once he's completely cleared to return to action, according to Capel.

One of four 2010-11 OU captains, Davis is the Sooners' leading returner in minutes, scoring, rebounding, assists, steals and 3-pointers. From Elk City, Okla., last year he averaged 9.9 points, 3.9 rebounds, 1.0 assist and a team-high 1.5 steals per game. He averaged 12.5 points over the season's last 12 games (second highest average on team).
