Alabama Women’s Basketball Senior Brittany Davis Plans to Return Next Season
After a superb senior season, Alabama women’s basketball player Brittany Davis announced that she would be returning for the 2022-23 season.
"I am so thankful [that] the NCAA and Coach Curry have given me the opportunity to compete at this level for another year," said Davis. "I don't take that for granted [and] that's why it was important for me to get to stay at Alabama and get better."
Davis started her career at Gulf Coast State College, winning the 2019 NJCAA National Championship as part of the team and earning Pan Handle Freshman of the Year. Davis averaged 16.4 points and 4.4 rebounds per game as a freshman.
In her first season at Alabama, Davis played in all thirty games averaging 6.6 points and 2.0 rebounds per game in the 2019-20 season. Davis ranked third on the team in three-point makes (32) during her sophomore season.
The next year would prove to be one that Davis did not expect, as she had to step back from the team due to pregnancy. After having her daughter, Brielle, Davis was ready to get back on the court for her senior season.
Davis returned for the 2021-22 season and impacted the team in a huge way, earning a spot on the All-SEC Second Team. Davis ended the regular season leading the SEC in three-point field goals made (77) and three-point field goals per game (2.85).
In the SEC Tournament, Davis averaged 15 points per game, including a huge 26-point performance leading the Tide to a 74-62 win over then-No. 24 Georgia.
Even though Davis has announced her return for next season, the Tide still have basketball left to be played.
Alabama (17-13, 6-10 SEC) currently sits in the next four out in the NCAA Tournament field and most likely will be participating in the WNIT.
