Davis scored 21 points, grabbed seven boards, made all nine free throw attempts and converted 6 of 12 field goals in the 99-95 loss.
None of this would have occurred had Davis not gone to college for a year.
Davis will go down as one of the best examples to keep rules allowing one-and-dones at a bare minimum for the NBA and the NCAA. Having players stay two years in college would be the optimum for both organizations, but that might be a reach. The National Basketball Players Association held firm on not yielding ground on that subject during the last negotiations and will likely do so going forward.
