… on the emotions surrounding her senior year
“My emotions this season were a roller coaster,” Davis said. “Between me being upset that it’s my last season and I was overjoyed with the team that we had this year, I had a lot of feelings.
… on her favorite playoff memory.
“There was a great moment this year in the Red Oak basketball playoff game,” Davis said. “Aleena [Dawkins] looked at me with tears and said we are so close, when we were down and I told her it’s gonna be OK. After that I had the shot to tie the game and took a charge to put us in overtime and win.”
Davis said she plans to attend Lamar University in Beaumont, continuing to play basketball while pursuing a medical degree in hopes of becoming an anesthesiologist.
