SAN BRUNO, Calif. - The West Coast Conference has named its Men's Basketball Player of the Week for November 18, 2013.
WEST COAST CONFERENCE PLAYER OF THE WEEK
STACY DAVIS, SO., F, PEPPERDINE
Pepperdine sophomore forward Stacy Davis averaged 23.5 points, 8.0 rebounds and 1.5 blocks and shot 71.4% from the field as Pepperdine won twice on the road this week. He had 23 points and nine rebounds in the Waves' 69-66 win at UC Riverside. He then matched a career-high with 24 points to go along with seven rebounds in Pepperdine's 88-71 win at Central Michigan.
Before this week Davis had never made a collegiate three-pointer. He went 2-for-2 against UCR, and 2-for-2 again against CMU. He's now 4-for-4 this season. He shot 71.4% from the field in both games (5-for-7 at UCR, 10-for-14 at CMU). He set single-game career highs from the free throw line against UCR (11-for-16) and made the go-ahead free throws with 33.7 seconds left.
Davis has scored 24, 23 and 24 in his first three games this season. He was the first Wave to score at least 23+ points in the first two games of the season since 1987-88 (that's still true for the first three games of the season).
Also nominated: Gary Bell Jr., Gonzaga; Kyle Collinsworth, BYU; Anthony Ireland, Loyola Marymount; Dennis Kramer, San Diego; Sama Taku, Pacific; Brad Waldow, Saint Mary's
