This was due to the 5-foot-7 senior guard having to wear a brace extending from her hip to her ankle on her right leg.

Notably, Davis twisted her knee in a game against Ohio State back on March 3.

Shortly after her team fell short in the championship game against South Carolina, she was among the players honored by Iowa fans in an end-of-season celebration on April 10:

When Davis was called forth, fans enthusiastically chanted her name and the whole Carver-Hawkeye Arena went bonkers. The Midland, MI native endeared herself to Iowa women’s basketball and their fans by her patented “heart, hustle, and headband” moniker (via The Next Hoops).

But before making her way to Iowa City, she was a standout player for the Central Michigan Chippewas.

This new Molly Davis injury update for Iowa is a good sign, considering Davis was sidelined throughout this year`s NCAAW March Madness. Her last game before getting injured against Ohio State was an 11-point, four-rebound and five-assist effort against Minnesota in late February.

Molly Davis Injury Update: How has her recovery fared so far?

Before undergoing the recent knee surgery, Davis was doing everything she could to get back on the court in time to potentially help Iowa during their last March Madness run.

Notably, she was seen warming up with the team on multiple occasions in a knee brace and is a vocal presence on the sidelines as well throughout the Hawkeyes’ tournament run.

Things didn’t look good early on, though Iowa head coach Lisa Bluder still had hope that she`d be back in time for the postseason.

Bluder notably said that Molly Davis` injury wasn`t exactly season-ending (via FOX Sports), so there was a bit of hope that she`d make it back for the tournament. But it unfortunately never came for her.

Now, there’s more than enough time for Davis to recover from surgery and return 100% for the upcoming season. With Caitlin Clark now a pro, Iowa needs veteran leadership and grit more than ever.
