Playing for Mike Davis
Senior forward Kevin Scott had a long journey getting to Texas Southern University. He admittedly struggled with finding his niche under legendary, hard-nosed coach Mike Davis.
“Playing for coach Davis is a change, it’s different you can’t come in doing what you want,” Scott said.
Last year as a junior Scott played in all 35 games, averaging 10 points and 4.9 rebounds per game. He’s one of two returning starters from last year’s SWAC championship team and will be called upon to be a leader this season.
