After an outstanding high school career, this center is headed to SMU next season.
Sarah Davis likes to roll doubles, particularly when it comes to scoring and rebounding. The 6-2, 170-pound post player racked up plenty of double-doubles during her recently completed high school career at Cypress Falls High School in Houston.
A varsity player since her freshman year. Davis averaged 15 points, 10.3 rebounds and 4.8 blocked shots as a junior, while shooting 43 percent from 3-point range. The Golden Eagles ended the 2000-2001 season with a 24-8 record.
As a senior, Davis was named to the second team of the Houston Chronicle's All-Greater Houston Basketball Team. One of the highlights of her season was the Aldine Tournament in December, in which she notched double-doubles in each of the three tourney games and was selected to the All-Tournament Team. She led Cypress Falls to a 20-12 record--the team just missed qualifying for the playoffs by one game in a very tough district.
Davis was nominated as a high school hero by her teammate, sophomore forward Krystal Powell. "She has helped me since my freshman year and encouraged me to stay out of trouble and focused on my dreams," says Powell.
"She is such a dedicated worker and always is positive," Powell continues. "She works extremely hard on the court and is a wonderful role model off the court. She's helped me get through these past years and knows what is takes to win. She's just an all-around wonderful player."
Davis has earned a full scholarship to Southern Methodist University, where she'll compete for a starting spot this fall.
