Alabama’s Brittany Davis Named SEC Player of the Week
After stepping back and missing the 2020-21 season due to pregnancy, Alabama senior guard Brittany Davis has stepped up in a big way for the Tide this season. Following two big performances this past week, the Southeastern Conference announced Davis as the SEC Player of the Week.
“She’s earned it,” said Alabama head coach Kristy Curry. “It’s never about that [awards] with Brittany, it’s more about team success and that’s what makes her so special and so fun to coach.”
On Thursday, Davis recorded 23 points on 8-of-15 shooting and six rebounds, as Alabama upset then-No. 12 Tennessee, 74-64.
Davis came up big once again on Sunday in Alabama’s thrilling double-overtime, 81-79, victory over Texas A&M. Davis scored a career-high 32 points on 12-of-26 shooting, draining seven three-pointers in the performance. Davis added six rebounds and one steal.
In SEC play, Davis currently leads the Tide in points per game (17.8) and is tied for first in rebounds per game (6.9).
“She’s just playing both sides of the ball and doing a really good job for us in so many areas,” said Curry.
Even though Davis has solidified herself as a star on the court, her daughter Brielle has taken over as the star of the locker room this season.
Davis will have to put up another big performance in Baton Rouge on Thursday if the Tide looks to upset No. 8 LSU.
