CHARLOTTE – Gardner-Webb point guard Luke Davis was named Big South Conference Men’s Basketball Player of the Week for the second time this season on Monday by the league office.

 

Davis (Raleigh, N.C. / Ravenscroft School) led Gardner-Webb to a 2-1 record at the 2010 Legends Classic Williamsburg sub-regional over the weekend, averaging 10.3 points, 5.3 assists and 1.7 steals per game.

 

Against William & Mary in the opener, Davis knocked in 4-of-7 three-point shots to finish with a career-high 15 points in a heartbreaking, 56-55, loss to the Tribe. He followed with a solid game distributing the basketball in a win over Western Carolina, scoring seven points and dishing off a career-high seven assists.

 

In the finale vs. Mercer, Davis helped Gardner-Webb surge to a 17-point lead three times in the second half and finished with nine points, two rebounds, six assists and three steals. He made 7-of-10 shots from the charity stripe and came up with assists on several key possessions in the final stanza.


Davis has been a constant at the lead guard spot for the Runnin’ Bulldogs (5-3) so far in 2010-2011, ranking second in the Big South with 4.9 assists per game and ranking second on the team with 8.9 points per game. The 6-0, 175-pounder is shooting an efficient 50.0 percent from the floor (21-of-42) and the three-point arc (12-of-24) through eight starts. Davis has also made 73.9 percent (17-of-23) from the free throw line.

 

His efforts have helped Gardner-Webb to its best start since going 5-3 to start the 2005-2006 season.

 

The Runnin’ Bulldogs will have their first Big South Conference test this Thursday, as they travel to battle High Point at 7 pm ET on December 2. The game will air live on MASN, with Matt Hogue and Nate Ross providing the call.

 

WGWG-FM (88.3) and wgwg.org will carry the game’s audio, with Fabian Fuentes, voice of the Runnin’ Bulldogs, on air.
