On the opening day of college basketball senior Terrence Davis was named to the Preseason Second Team All-SEC for the 2018-19 season. This is the second straight year Davis found himself on the list.
Coming into his final campaign as a Rebel, Davis ranks 39th in Ole Miss history with 1,011 career points. The Southaven, Mississippi, native has played in 88 games since arriving on campus, making 51 appearances in the starting lineup. In 13 of those games, Davis eclipsed the 20-point plateau, including a career-high 33 points versus LSU as a sophomore. He burst onto the scene as a sophomore (2015-16) by averaging 14.5 points per game, a significant increase from his 1.8 output as a freshman and the largest scoring increase by any player in the SEC.
As a junior, Davis led the Rebels in scoring (13.8 ppg) and rebounding (6.2 rpg). He ranked 20th in the conference in scoring and cracked the top 10 by pulling down 4.7 defensive rebounds per game. On the defensive side of the floor, Davis paced the Rebels with 28 blocks and also ranked third in steals (29).
Davis has already shown his leadership as a senior. In the Rebels’ preseason trip to Canada, the 6-foot-4 guard averaged 21.0 ppg, 8.3 rpg, 3.5 apg and 2.3 spg (all team highs) over four games. Fast forward to Friday night’s exhibition versus Fayetteville State, Davis led Ole Miss with 20 points, nine rebounds, four blocks and four assists without making a turnover.
Ole Miss tips-off the regular season on Saturday as they host Western Michigan in The Pavilion at 3 p.m. on the SEC Network +.
