Amari Davis lands on preseason poll, Green Bay men picked eighth
After earning Horizon League Freshman of the Year honors and shattering the single-season record for all-time freshman of the week awards (10), Green Bay’s Amari Davis has landed himself a spot on the coveted preseason first-team all-league.
Davis, who enters the 2020-21 season as a true sophomore, was the first player in program history to collect the honor of Horizon League Freshman of the Year. He also earned an all-league third team nod after averaging 15.9 PPG and 4.0 RPG.
The Trotwood, Ohio, native appeared in all 33 games for the Phoenix while starting 27 and broke the program’s all-time freshman scoring record, passing Tony Bennett and finishing with 524 points on the season. The stellar campaign placed him in the top 10 in league scoring while he finished second in the conference in field-goal percentage, shooting 51.4%.
First-year head coach Will Ryan‘s team was picked to finish eighth, while Wright State was favored to repeat as conference champions for the third-consecutive season. Newcomers Robert Morris and Purdue Fort Wayne are slotted to finish fourth and 11th, respectively.
