DaVonte Lacy update

From Pullman — Davonte Lacy is back from the hospital and his coaches say he's in good spirits. He even participated in Monday's practice, albeit as a manager for the WSU men's basketball team.

“As of now he's up and about, he came home from the hospital yesterday,” coach Ken Bone said on Monday. “He was at practice today as a manager. Handed the guys towels and water and did a good job of it.”

More on Lacy, after the jump.

Lacy was taken to the hospital for appendicitis prior to the Cougars game on Saturday against Mississippi Valley State. Surgery was required, and the guard was kept overnight.


He has shown dramatic improvement for the Cougars this year, raising his scoring average from 10.5 points per game to 18.9. Apart from being the undisputed go-to scorer for the team, Lacy’s teammates consider him one of its vocal leaders as well.


In his absence, freshman guard Que Johnson led the team with 19 points on 17 shots against MVSU. Royce Woolridge and Ike Iroegbu will also likely be asked to take on more of the scoring load.


Bone also said that Lacy will not play against No. 1 Arizona on Thursday, and that it is doubtful the junior will be available on Sunday against Arizona State. However, the coach said he would like Lacy to travel with the team, regardless of whether or not he is ready to play.
