Trayce Jackson-Davis not playing against Kennesaw State, Geronimo to return

Indiana’s leading scorer and rebounder will miss his second straight game.

Senior forward Trayce Jackson-Davis will not play against Kennesaw State on Friday evening for “precautionary reasons.”

Jackson-Davis also missed Indiana’s Tuesday game against Elon.  He has been dealing with a lower back issue since a November game against Miami (Ohio).  In total this is Jackson-Davis’ third missed game of the season due to the back issue.

The 6-foot-9 Greenwood, Ind. product is averaging 16.4 points per game, 8.3 rebounds, and 2.7 blocked shots.

Junior forward Jordan Geronimo, who also missed the Elon game with a dislocated finger, is expected to play on Friday.

Point guard Xavier Johnson will be out until at least some time in February.

Indiana and Kennesaw State tip at 7 p.m. Eastern at Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall in Bloomington.
