Antoine Davis, son of former NBA star Reggie Miller, is on the verge of breaking “Pistol” Pete Maravich’s all-time NCAA men’s basketball scoring record. Davis has been chasing the record for weeks, and with just a few more points, he will become the new all-time leader.
Davis has been receiving support from Maravich’s family, who believe the legendary player would be “cheering on” Davis from the sidelines. Maravich’s son, Josh, has even reached out to Davis to offer his support and encouragement.
In an interview with ESPN, Davis expressed his admiration for Maravich, saying he has watched footage of the basketball great to learn from his game. The young player added, “It’s an honor to potentially break his record, but I just want to focus on winning and helping my team.”
Davis has been a force to be reckoned with all season, averaging over 22 points per game. He has led his team, the Detroit Titans, to a 6-14 record, but his impressive scoring ability has earned him national recognition.
As Davis approaches the record, the media has been buzzing with anticipation. A recent article from Sporting News dubbed him “poised to break” Maravich’s career record, while an ESPN piece listed “5 things to know” about Davis as he prepares to make history.
Despite the excitement, Davis is staying focused on the game. In a recent interview with 247Sports, he said, “I don’t pay attention to haters or anything else. I just try to play my game and focus on winning.”
If Davis does break Maravich’s record, he will go down in history as one of the greatest scorers in NCAA men’s basketball history. With his talent and drive, there’s no doubt that he will continue to make headlines for years to come.
