TOWSON, Md. – Towson University head men’s basketball coach Pat Skerry announced during Tuesday’s weekly Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) teleconference that senior forward and co-captain John Davis would miss the remainder of the 2016-17 season.

“His health is fine,” Skerry said during the call. “He’ll be able to play next year overseas, but he won’t play the rest of this season. He’s been a leader for us and a good role model for our guys. We are forever grateful for John. He’s done a lot of more for our program than what we were ever able to do for him.”

Winners of four consecutive games and nine of its last 10, Towson (17-10 overall, 9-5 CAA) returns to action Thursday when it hosts Elon (16-11, 8-6) at SECU Arena beginning at 7 p.m.
