Green Bay’s Davis is first-team preseason pick

GREEN BAY – After earning Horizon League Freshman of the Year honors, Green Bay’s Amari Davis has landed himself a spot on the Horizon League’s preseason first-team list.

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 points and 4.0 rebounds per game.
The Trotwood, Ohio, native appeared in all 33 games for the Phoenix.

He started 27 games and broke the program’s all-time freshman scoring record, passing Tony Bennett and finishing with 524 points on the season.

His strong campaign placed him in the top-10 in league scoring while he finished second in the conference in field-goal percentage, shooting 51.4 percent.

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.

The preseason poll and teams were voted on by head coaches, sports information directors and media members.
