The University of Alabama men’s basketball program will honor seniors Riley Norris and Ar’mond Davis on Senior Night before the Crimson Tide’s home game against Florida on Tuesday although both players could decide to seek additional eligibility after the season.
Norris, a 6-foot-6 forward from Albertville, played in nine games this season before a chronic hip injury caused him to opt for season-ending surgery. He could apply for an additional year under the NCAA rules allowing for medically-related redshirts. Norris has played in 109 games for Alabama in his career.
Davis, a junior college transfer, played in 32 games for UA in the 2017 season, averaging 6.3 points per game. He initially announced that he would transfer following the 2017 season, then opted to return but was slowed by a knee injury. He has not played this season and will have a fifth year of eligibility which he could use at UA or at another institution where he would be immediately eligible under the NCAA’s graduate transfer policy.
Norris graduated last spring, according to UA coach Avery Johnson and Davis is on track to graduate in May. Johnson indicated that no final decision will be made on their future until after the current season.
The ceremony honoring the two seniors will begin at approximately 5:40 p.m, 20 minutes prior to the Alabama-Florida tip-off.
