2017-18 averages: 11.2 points, 8.5 rebounds, 3.0 blocked shots, 1.9 steals, 1.3 assists per game
Season highlights: Coach Josh Ulitzky’s Grandview team finished 25-3 and repeated as Class 5A state champions with a group of players who had clearly defined roles and Davis did her job on the inside as well as anybody. A lot of the Wolves’ defensive success came from the fact that they could extend their pressure knowing that Davis was there to protect the basket, which she did to the tune of 3.0 blocked shots per game, with a season-high of nine coming in the Final Four against Fossil Ridge. Davis showed an improved shooting touch from the outside that complimented her ability to get to the basket and she used those things to post a scoring average of 11.2 points per game — a two-point increase from her previous season — that included a season-high 19 points against Smoky Hill. She had nine double-doubles and her rebounding average of 8.5 per game also led the team, while she contributed 1.9 steals and 1.3 assists per game as well. Davis is a two-time A-Town All-Star Girls Game selection.
