Former Carson-Newman men’s basketball player Antoine Davis has advanced in his professional playing career overseas, jumping up two leagues from Germany’s Regionaliga to Pro-A.
Davis, the reigning Regionaliga player of the year, will compete next season with the Rhondorf Dragons, which finished 14-8 last year and third in Pro-B’s South Division. The Dragons, much like Davis, received promotion and will compete in the Pro-A next season.
“I’m very pleased for Antoine. No one is more deserving,” Carson-Newman head men’s basketball coach Chuck Benson said. “He will perform consistently at a high level and this is the beginning of more great things for Antoine Davis.”
Rhondorf sits on the Rhein River south of Cologne near the country’s eastern border with Belgium.
The Rustburg, VA. native had eight games on the plus side of 30 points and shot 54 percent from the field, 42 percent from three and 83 percent at the free throw line.
Davis is Carson-Newman’s all-time Division II leader for scoring average, scoring 18.2 points per game in his Carson-Newman career.
He’s in the top 10 in Carson-Newman’s all-time scoring list and number two since the team moved to Division II with 1,526 career points.
