Local report—CWU men’s basketball adds big man

September 20, 2011 by  

ELLENSBURG — Central Washington’s defending GNAC championship men’s basketball team got bigger and better Tuesday with the signing of Kevin Davis, a 6-foot-9 sophomore from Tacoma Community College.

Davis, who prepped at Todd Beamer in Federal Way, played last season for former CWU assistant Carl Howell.

He joins a returning group including Jody Johnson, Roby Clyde and Toussaint Tyler, the latter a standout in 2009-10 who missed last season with injury.

“Right now,” said Central coach Greg Sparling, “he’s a heck of a rebounder and defensive player. He can really change a game at the defensive end. To get a kid of his caliber this late is a real bonus.”

Davis originally committed to Washington, but played last season at Tacoma, where he averaged 7.5 rebounds. No other statistical information was available.
