Surgery for Davis Successful

April 30, 2002

Durham, NC – Clemson women’s basketball coach Jim Davis had surgery for prostate cancer Monday, and the procedure went well.

Davis underwent a 5 1/2 hour operation at Duke University Medical Center in Durham, N.C., and is expected to spend the rest of the week there before returning home this weekend.

Tests last week indicated that Davis’ cancer “appeared localized,” and a complete recovery is anticipated.

Davis, 55, has coached Clemson’s women’s team the last 15 years, with a 316-150 record and 14 trips to the NCAA Tournament.

Davis’ teams won the Atlantic Coast Conference Tournament in 1996 and 1999.
