Baron Davis Press Conference Scheduled
By: UCLA Athletics

May 11, 1999

UCLA sophomore guard Baron Davis will announce his future basketball plans at a press conference on Wednesday (May 12) at noon in the media room of the J. D. Morgan Center.

Davis, a 6-2 1/2, 210-pounder who prepped at Crossroads in Santa Monica, last season as a sophomore led the Bruins to a 22-9 overall record and a third- place (12-6) finish in the Pacific-10, along with the school's 11th consecutive NCAA Tournament appearance. He led the Bruins in scoring (15.9), assists (5.1) and steals (2.5). He was a national finalist for the Wooden and USBWA Player of the Year awards and also was a first-team All-Pac-10 selection.

As a freshman in 1997-98, before a left knee injury cut short his rookie season, Davis averaged 11.7 points, 4.0 rebounds, 5.0 assists, 2.4 steals and shot 52.9 from the field, helping to lead the Bruins to a 24-9 overall record, third-place (12-6) in the Pac-10 and to the NCAA 'Sweet 16'. He was named to the Basketball Times ' Freshman All-American team and was Pac-10 Freshman of the Year.

It was during the 1998 NCAA Tournament that Baron injured his left knee. Early in the first half of UCLA's 85-82 win over Michigan in an NCAA second- round game, Davis came down hard after a dunk and tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee. He missed UCLA's next game, a 94-68 NCAA 'Sweet 16' loss to eventual NCAA champion Kentucky.

The injury required surgery, along with a summer-long rehabilitation program. Davis missed the first four contests of 1998-99 because of the injury, then returned to start 26 of UCLA's final 27 games, setting the stage for Wednesday's press conference.
