Player of the Week: Alabama’s Brittany Davis put together back-to-back 23+ point and six rebound games to help Alabama defeat both No. 12/8 Tennessee (home) and Texas A&M (away in double overtime) last week. At Texas A&M, Davis scored just three points in the first half on 1-of-10 from the field, including 0-of-5 from long range, as Alabama trailed Texas A&M, 31-22, at halftime. Davis came out of the locker room after halftime scoring 21 points on 8-of-9 from the field (88.9 percent), including 5-of-6 from long range (83.3 percent), in the second half alone to help Alabama tie and go into overtime with Texas A&M. In fact, Davis had perfect shooting on 5-of-5 from the field, including 3-of-3 from the arc, in the fourth quarter alone. Davis’ 32 points at Texas A&M are a career high, and the most of any player on the team this season. Davis’ seven three-point field goals at Texas A&M are a career high, marking the third time she has reset her career high in that category this season, and the most of any player on the team this season. On the week she went 20-of-41 with a 11-of-23 mark from beyond the arc.
