Iowa City, IA – Sunday evening turned out to be a rough evening for Iowa after suffering a tough loss to Michigan, as the Hawkeyes led majority of the game. But, it was late in the fourth quarter when Iowa’s starting point guard, Tania Davis, left the game with an injury. She departed the quarter with 12 points, two assists and six rebounds.

Now, it has been confirmed Davis’ injury was very serious – a torn ACL in her right knee, as reported by the Des Moines Register. The Hawkeyes will now have to search for someone else to fill her starting position as the floor general since she will miss the remainder of the season.

Davis has started in all 23 games the Hawkeyes have played this year with averages of 10.9 points, 4.3 assists, and 3.7 rebounds per game. Iowa also will be losing its leading free-throw shooter as, Davis has been shooting 87.8% from the charity strip and was one of the Hawkeyes’ top three, shooters from deep at 33.3%.

Currently Iowa is tied for fifth with Indiana in Big 10 league play at 5-5. The Hawkeyes will play their first game without Davis on Thursday against Michigan State at 6 p.m CT.
