Ole Miss senior guard Terence Davis was tabbed as the SEC Player of the Week after he averaged 19.5 points per game in the two wins over two top 15 opponents last week.

Davis recorded team highs in points (27) and rebounds (12), earning the first double-double by a Rebel this season, as Ole Miss upset No. 10 Auburn 82-67 last week (Jan. 9). Going 9 of 15 from the floor, it was the 19th 20-point game of his career and moved Davis into the top 25 of the Ole Miss all-time scoring list. With the help of four three-pointers, the senior moved into the Ole Miss top 10 in threes made for a career as well (140 in 103 career games). He hit two more Saturday, going 5 of 10 from the floor for 12 points in the 81-77 victory at No. 14 Mississippi State (Jan. 12). The win marked the first time Ole Miss beat back-to-back ranked teams since the 2002-03 season.

Davis joined teammate junior Breein Tyree for garnering the honor in back-to-back weeks. Tyree had a career-high 31 points in the win over Vanderbilt Jan. 5.

The Southaven, Mississippi native is shooting 50.6 percent from the floor. He leads the Rebels in assists (3.5 per game), ranking 10th in the conference, as well as rebounds (5.6 per game). On the defensive side, he is second on the team in both steals (19) and blocks (14).

Ole Miss returns to the court on Tuesday as they put their 10-game winning streak on the line against the LSU Tigers. Tip-off is slated for 8 p.m. on the SEC Network.
