During the 2014 LeFlore County Tournament, she collapsed at Carl Albert State College's Mick Thompson Fieldhouse. Davis, who had dealt with heart issues in the past, had the biggest issue of them all. She had open-heart surgery in Little Rock, Ark., to repair the damage. She made a full recovery, but could not return to action on the hardwood.
