The contest marked one of Gregory's team-leading eight double-doubles.

Davis, a 6-0, 170-pound redshirt sophomore, ranks second on the team with 12.3 points per game. He leads the Quakers from the free-throw line with a 78.6 percentage, good for ninth in the league. Davis' 27.9 minutes per game are good for third on the team, and he sits second in assists per game as well (1.7). He is tied at sixth with 3.2 boards per game. Davis' best performance this season came against the University of Lynchburg where he boasted a career-high 29 points, pushing his team to a 75-60 win over their league-rival. He earned the ODAC's Player of the Week Award February 17 after leading the Quakers to league-wins over Lynchburg and Hampden-Sydney College.
