Stanford University freshman guard Daejon Davis is a game-time decision for his team’s game against Pacific University on Sunday night, Stanford head coach Jerod Haase told FanRag Sports on Sunday afternoon.

Davis is dealing with neck spasms and did not play in Stanford’s season-opening win over Cal Poly on Friday night.

The 6-foot-4, 175-pounder was ranked the 49th best prospect in his class by 247 Sports and chose the Cardinal over Gonzaga, Oregon and Washington, all of whom made offers to Davis.

Davis played his high-school basketball at Garfield in Seattle and averaged 16.2 points, 8.6 assists, 4.8 rebounds, 4.4 steals and 2.2 blocks per game during his senior campaign.

Stanford went 14-17 last season and has not made the NCAA Tournament since 2014, when it won 23 games and ended up falling in the Sweet 16.

Overall, the Cardinal have made the “Big Dance” just once since 2009, a long drought for a program that qualified for the tournament 11 straight years between 1995 and 2005.

Haase is in his second year as coach of Stanford after coaching UAB for four years between 2013 and 2016. He led UAB to one NCAA Tournament appearance.

Stanford will battle Pacific at 10 p.m. ET on Sunday night.
