LANSING, MI – Lansing Pharaohs guard, Latin Davis, has become the first Pharaohs player to win the TBL player of the week award. Davis was awarded the honor on Monday, May 2nd, after an impressive week 8 performance that featured a 29-point performance against the Flint United on April 30th and a monstrous 44-point performance against the Detroit Hustle on May 1st. Davis also added an average of 6.5 assists per game and 4.2 rebounds per game throughout the week, which aided the Pharaohs to go 2-0 against their in-state competition.
When asked about what it meant for him to win the award Davis stated, “it’s a real good feeling to be acknowledged, it shows the hard work I’ve put in with this team, we’ve all been working really hard since the season started”.
Davis played high school basketball in Milan, MI, and won an MHSAA state title in 2014 while scoring 34 points in the championship game. Davis would commit to Youngstown State and play two seasons there before transferring to Wayne State where he would average 15 PPG and 3 APG his senior season in 2019.
“He’s been an outstanding player and even better person,” said Lansing Pharaoh’s head coach, Scott Newman, who had nothing but great things to say about Davis.
