DAVIS BECOMES ALL-TIME LEADING SCORER

DAVIS BECOMES ALL-TIME LEADING SCORER

Feb. 8, 2010

In an 88-82 non-conference win over Wesleyan University on February 3, 2010, Emmanuel's Iman Davis (Toms River, N.J.) poured in 21 points and in doing so became the program's new all-time leading scorer. Davis entered the game with 1,611 career points, just fifteen points shy of the Emmanuel program's career scoring record. The senior tri-captain surpassed the mark of 1,626 points set by All-American Lesa Dennis, who played for the Saints from 1984-1988. Davis, one of the best players to ever to suit up as a Saint, also holds triple-figure career totals in three other categories, including: rebounds, assists and steals.

The Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC), which was established in 1995, also has Davis in its record books. Last week, Davis became the GNAC Women's Basketball all-time leading scorer. The former mark of 1,570 points was set by Albertus Magnus College's Natalia Perlaza in 2005.

Davis' career total steals leads that of all past and present conference players. She also ranks 8th among the GNAC leaders in career assists, falling just behind 2008 Emmanuel graduate Jade Paez. Her total career rebounds places her among the top twenty conference leaders.

Davis is one of Emmanuel's all-time most decorated student-athletes. She was been named the conference's Player of the Year both as a sophomore and a junior. Along with her player of the year honors, Davis has also been named to ECAC and D3hoops.com All-New England region teams. Davis was chosen a pre-season All-American this year and has helped lead the Saints to their current NCAA ranking of 4th in New England.
