He scored 15 points on 5-of-9 shooting from the field and a 5-of-5 effort from the free-throw line against Alderson Broaddus, then posted a career-high 25 points on 9-of-13 from the floor and 7-of-8 from the foul line against Cedarville.

Prior to the start of the season, Davis was chosen as a second-team selection in the South Division on the 2014-15 All-GLIAC Men's Basketball Preseason Teams. He is AU's top returning scorer from a season ago at 10.7 points per game. Davis shot 59.6 percent from the field (sixth-best in the GLIAC) and averaged 4.5 rebounds a contest as a freshman.
