Snubbed by His Own Conference, Corey Davis Jr. Pushes a 31-2 Houston Team to Brink of the Sweetest Selection Sunday Ever
“I’ve learned that when Corey gets this certain look in his eye, it’s time to get out of the way,” UH senior point Galen Robinson Jr. tells PaperCity . “I learned that quick. When he gets that look, he’s going to do something special.”
Davis gets the look several times in this AAC semifinal, with the crowd roaring “Let’s Go Tigers! Let’s Go Tigers!” and the No. 11 team in America wobbling a bit around him. The most telling sequence comes after Memphis opens the second half with a 5-0 run to pull within 36-31.
Cue a Corey Davis pull-up three followed immediately by a Davis strip of Memphis star guard Jeremiah Martin in the lane on the other end. Those two cold blooded plays on two different ends of the court, back to back, illustrate what sets Davis apart from all the other scoring guards in the country.
