    Dumprake... Must be a Ute? I doubt Davies will be drafted, so like many Cougs he will probably be in a European league.

    As to making in the NBA, here's what ESPN's Chad Ford said about him in the Portsmouth Seniors Invitational "Davies is both a good athlete and has more skill than you might think at first glance. He has a solid face-the-basket game and a pretty high basketball IQ ... He was one of the few guys NBA scouts seemed excited about after the first two days of the event."

    But a limited skill set? He's good on steals, rebounds, and points, and even throws in some blocks and good passes. Not astounding in any one thing, but good in many and not limited to any one thing. Of all of our guys with the exception of Haws, he was the most versatile, and one of the most athletic. Undersized for a Center, but could pull a good Power Forward.

    I think that Davies has some good Offensive back to the basket moves.. I like his length and his aggressiveness on defense... Whether he is drafted or not, I don't know... It's an "iffy" case... Many experts have him as a mid to late second rounder... I guess we'll see in a month or two, won't we???

    If he doesn't play in the NBA, I think that he is a shoe in for Europe, which might not be a bad gig for 5 years or so.

    On a personal level, I really like the kid... He is a fighter and when he is committed to something he stays the course... The way he handled his suspension will always be an example for me, my family and my friends... The kid was Classy with a capital "C"...

    Will Clyburn. That name sounds really familiar. He didn't happen to play for some team in the West before transferring, did he?

    Glad to hear that Davies got the chance to play one more "college" game. I hope he has a bright future in Europe if he continues to play, or whatever other endeavor he decides to embark upon.

    Agree with Idablu. It seems that everyone is backwards in this article. Guys from the West playing for the East, and guys from the East playing for the West. Does not make a lot of sense. If you're not gonna take East-West into account, by not just call it the "All-America Classic" and have a Blue team and a Red team?

    Davies will not get drafted, don't kid yourself, his skills are very limited and he would not make any NBA team.

    Yea exactly idablu,
    Why was Davies playing for the East Team? That's a little weird how they divide it like that.

    Sounds like Davies did alright.

    I sure don't understand how the teams are divided. Players from Oregon and Utah playing for the East team?
    What's up with that?

    Davies is playing himself into a late first round NBA draft pick.
