Saturday, April 6, 2019




The Women's Basketball Coaches Association announced its 2019 WBCA NCAA Division I Coaches' All-America Team on Thursday, and Tennessee sophomore Rennia Davis was among those receiving honorable mention distinction.

Davis, a 6-foot-2 guard/forward from Jacksonville, FL, tied as Tennessee's leading scorer at 14.9 points per game and led the Lady Vols in rebounding (7.7 rpg.) and free throw percentage (.856). That accuracy at the charity stripe ranked No. 1 in the SEC and No. 34 nationally.

A starter during 62 of 64 games in her two-year career, Davis posted a team-leading nine double-doubles this season and scored in double figures a team-high 26 times, including 16 games with 15 or more points and six with 20 or more. Davis also led the team with 10 double-digit rebound games this season. Her 7.7 per game rebound average is the ninth-best ever in a season by a Lady Vol sophomore, while her 14.9 scoring average tied for No. 5 all-time by a UT sophomore.

In addition to ranking No. 1 in free throw percentage (.856) among SEC players, Davis stood No. 8 in rebounding (7.7), No. 10 in field goal percentage (.456) and No. 12 in scoring (14.9).
