Ed Davis

From several people on twitter and then from this WRAL article comes word that the chances of seeing sophomore power forward Ed Davis is prett slim, as head coach Roy Williams said in his press conference that the young man, who is the team’s leading rebounder and second leading scorer, is “very questionable for the game”. Here it comes, wait for it, this season has officialy become “it is what it is”. Add to all of this that seven footer Tyler Zeller, who is the third leading scorer, will also not be in the game and once again we find that what should have been this season’s strong point is getting thinner and thinner by the game.

The head coach said this of Davis:

“He’s just not at the level where he can really push of that ankle and jump off that leg,” Williams said. “It’s very questionable whether he’ll play tomorrow night. In my mind it would have to be a significant improvement for him to play.”

Something more concerning might be this phrase that coach Williams had to say:

“He’s frustrated by it there’s no doubt about it. He was frustrated in the second half of the Georgia Tech game when he played a huge majority in the second half and only got one rebound. It’s been frustrating for him.”

It has to be tough for the young man to sit around and not be able to play, especially with how things are going with the team. As I keep saying to one and all, this team is talented, but it is also young, and when you are young these like this can easily distract you from focusing on the problem at hand. Last year’s squad (and the year before) dealt with the problem of losing a starter for the whole year (Ginyard) and one for a couple of games (Lawson) without missing but of a beat. This one might have a lot more of a problem handling the same situation.
