Antoine Davis feels “cheated” out of scoring record after CBI received calls in opposition, but still feels like “the best scorer in my generation”;
Maravich’s son: “Your season should be over if you’re 14-19. But to be clear, I’m not mad at Antoine Davis"
Basically The CBI was going to invite detroit for the purpose of breaking the record… a ton of people emailed and called protesting that (because Detroit wouldn’t be invited to the cbi if there wasnt a record involved, that the team didnt earn the invite.) CBI ultimately folded and didnt invite them
Maravich’s son has been vocal about not liking the idea of him being invited to the tournament undeserving for the sole purpose of breaking the award. that its in poor taste to the record
First off Pete did it at LSU against tougher competition. Davis was chasing it while losing games, playing weak competition, playing just about every minute and having the green light from his dad to shoot from wherever and whenever.
To allow them in the CBI in an effort to sell extra 10s of tickets to a meaningless game would have been a travesty.
It would not have mattered who the coach at LSU was. They had a terrible team and Pete was a one man show.
Now had he played at Kentucky or Duke or UCLA he would never had put up those numbers. But he would have have been a first team All American and still the most exciting player in the country!
