Davis signs NLI to play at King

BRISTOL, Tenn. – King University women's basketball head coach Josh Thompson has announced the signing of Madison Davis. Last month, Davis signed a National Letter of Intent to play her college basketball at King starting in the 2014-15 season.

Davis comes to King after helping The Webb School of Knoxville to a state championship a season ago. The 5-10 forward has been a four-year starter for the Lady Spartans and was named to the All-District and All-Region Tournament teams. Davis also earned All-Region Tournament MVP honors a season ago.

In 35 games last season, Davis grabbed 189 rebounds for an average of 5.4 per game and poured in 273 points, or 7.8 per game. She led the team in rebounding and ranked third in scoring as the Lady Spartans took their third state title in 2012.

During her junior year, Davis earned numerous awards, highlighted by the All-Region, and All-District Tournament team honors. She was also named an All-Region and All-District performer during the regular season. After being named to the Preseason Knoxville Player to Watch List, Davis was named to the All-Knoxville third team after the season.

"We are very excited about adding Madison Davis to our King women's basketball family! First of all she is a great person and a great student," Thompson said. "She comes from a well-respected program at The Webb School of Knoxville where she plays for former Tennessee Lady Vol, Shelley Collier. With her size and length combined with her ball handling skills and shooting ability we feel that she will be a great asset to us on the wing. We are very happy that she chose King."
