DETROIT (Michigan News Source) – University of Detroit Mercy’s graduate senior earned his 12th Horizon League Player of the Week award continuing to put his name in the career books.
The 12 times for the award continue to be the most for one player in league history. It is the third time this year for the Horizon League Player of the Year award as he was co-Player of the Week with Milwaukee’ BJ Freeman. Davis moves past former Green Bay standout Keifer Sykes who won it 11 times.
Playing in just one game vs. IUPUI, he tied his career high with 42 points going 16-of-30 making eight three-pointers with five assists. He scored 25 of the 42 points in the first half and is the first UDM player to record back-to-back 40-point games. He is the first player at NCAA Division I to do this since the 2019-20 season when Marquette’s Markus Howard did it.
With the 42 points, he moved into second place all-time in NCAA history with 3,274 points and is now just 393 points behind Pete Maravich’s record of 3,667. He has now also hit 521 three-pointers which is also a NCAA record.
UDM is currently 8-12 on the year and 4-5 in the Horizon League.
