08. Dre Davis (Ole Miss)

2023-24 Season at Seton Hall: 15.0 PPG | 5.9 RPG | 1.3 BPG | 49.2 FG% | 35.0 3PT%

After a slightly underwhelming junior season, Dre Davis turned himself into one of the better players in the Big East Conference last year. He increased his scoring average by over four points and nearly doubled his rebounds per game. He also nearly doubled his steals per game and became one of the better shot blockers in the conference. 

Davis was one of three Seton Hall guards to average at least 15 points per game, and what made him stand out was the ways he liked to score the ball. Unlike most guards, Davis didn’t rely on the three ball, he preferred to battle in the paint to fill up the box score. He scored 25 or more points five times last season, with a season-high of 28 points in a win over DePaul. His best defensive games were in wins over Villanova and North Texas, Davis recorded four blocks in each of those outings. 

Davis was instrumental in Seton Hall's run to the NIT title. During those games last season, he averaged 16.6 posts, 6.8 rebounds, and 2.6 blocks, numbers that most coaches would be happy to see. 

Dre Davis wasn’t the best three-point shooter last season, but as mentioned before he does most of his offensive work in the paint. If he can clean that part of his game up a little, there will be no double that Davis will have a positive offensive impact on Ole Miss. His defensive ability is undeniable. And his experience defending some of the best players in the country will no doubt help improve a Rebel team that struggled to get stops last season.
