This offseason, perhaps the most notable name to enter the transfer portal on the hoops side was Kendric Davis, the AAC Player of the Year at SMU.

Davis, a 5-foot-11 guard, started his career at TCU. He played one season there, starting two games and averaging just over six points per contest. However, the guard knew that he was bound for bigger things at the Division One level.
Davis transferred to SMU and exploded onto the national scene. In his first year there, he averaged 14.2 points and 6.7 assists per game, earning all AAC honors. He then played two more seasons at SMU, starring for the Mustangs and starting every game he played in the uniform.
At SMU, Davis was a 46% three-point shooter and one of the most potent scorers in college hoops at over 17 points per game.
Then, this offseason, he chose to commit to Penny Hardaway’s Memphis squad in hopes for another massive season.
Through six games, Davis has elevated his game even higher than previously before. Davis is averaging a career-high 19.5 points per contest so far this season to go along with a not-too-shabby 5.5 assists per game. He has hit one third of his three-point attempts and has converted on 82% of his free-throw tries. Davis has Memphis sitting at 4-2 and has Hardaway’s squad excited for conference play.
