SCIAC Athletes of the Week

WHITTIER, Calif. – Senior Eric Davis (Ventura, Calif.) was selected as the Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SCIAC) Athlete of the Week for Men's Basketball in the fourth week of voting.    

Davis lifted Whittier to a 92-66 win over SCIAC rival La Verne in the Poets' first SCIAC contest of the 2017-18 regular season, netting 20 points and hauling in 11 rebounds.  He also added three assists, two steals and blocked a shot in the win over the Leopards. Davis's 20-point effort was highlighted by a 10-for-14 (71.4%) shooting effort from the field in 28 minutes of action, while nine of his 11 boards came on the defensive glass.

Whittier leaves for Daytona Beach, FL later this week to take part in the Daytona Beach Classic on Saturday-Sunday, December 16-17.
