Mott Community College sophomores Darryl “Boo” Marshall and Walter Davis led the national tournament in assist-to-turnover ratio and blocked shots, respectively.
Marshall averaged 30 minutes per game and surrendered only two turnovers in four games for an astounding 6-to-1 ratio. Davis, for his part, spearheaded Mott’s defensive attack with 16 blocks in four games. In those games, Mott held opponents to a lackluster 38 percent shooting thanks, in part, to Davis’ ability to protect the rim.
Marshall and Davis are two of three players Steve Schmidt recruited out of Memphis, Tennessee two years ago.
