Mott’s Leviante Davis has breakout game in 95-76 win over LMC

Posted: December 30, 2010 by Jared Field in College

FLINT, Michigan — The biggest matchup problem in MCCAA is not Doug Anderson or Jamie Stewart. Those players, to be sure, have given defenders fits all season and are arguably the top two JUCO players in the state.

Enter sophomore transfer Leviante Davis, a part-time starter for Mott whose combination of size and athleticism is truly rare. Davis, at 6-4 and about 250+ pounds, is a nightmare to guard. He blows by forwards on the perimeter and manhandles taller bigs in the post.

Last night in Mott’s 95-76 win over a hot-shooting Lake Michigan squad, Davis had 26 points with nine rebounds and four assists. He shot 9-for-14 from the field, right in line with his ridiculous field goal percentage — hovering between 60-70 percent all season.

Anderson, for his part, wasn’t exactly chopped liver on Wednesday night. The high-flying sophomore scored 23 points on 13 shots with five rebounds.

Mott’s starting backcourt, sophomores Demetrius Miller and Sam Burton had solid all-around games as well. Burton had 14 points and nine rebounds. Miller added 13 points and six assists.

LMC’s Tim Bater is one of the best players in the MCCAA, in my opinion, because of his versatility. He’s about 6-6, lanky and athletic. He scored 23 points with nine rebounds and six steals.

The Indians(6-4) kept this game reasonably close with outstanding 3-point shooting. They swished 9-of-18 from deep.

Mott is now 12-2 on the season and will host Delta on Monday at 7:30 p.m.

    I’m happy to see Davis doing good work. I can remember watching him play at Southwestern, back when they went to the final four of the state championships. Keep up the good work, Gore!

    I always thought he was the best player on Anthony Crater’s SWA team…. Including Crater himself.

  3. Robbie Williford says:

    I wish Anthony wouldn’t have gotten so big-headed. But I think Crater made everyone around him better.

  4. Kelly Fields says:

    I loooooooooooove Gore’s game. He is a monster in the paint and incredibly nimble for his size. As well as, one of the biggest hearts of any kid I have taught. Love that kid.
