MORRISVILLE, N.Y. The Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) announced its 2011-12 Division III Upstate Men’s Basketball All-Star Teams Wednesday, naming Morrisville State College sophomore Mickey Davis (Jamesville, N.Y.) to its second team.

The 6-foot-5 forward led Morrisville State and the North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) in scoring this season, averaging 17.5 points per game, while adding averages of 6.3 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 1.6 steals per game for the Mustangs.

A threat both inside and from beyond the arc, Davis hit 50 from downtown, while converting a conference-best 192 total shots from the floor. He scored in double figures in all but three contests on the season, highlighted by a career high 35 points that earned NEAC Student-Athlete of the Week honors in December.

Named the NEAC Player of the Year, Davis also garnered All-Conference First Team honors while leading Morrisville State to its first conference championship title and bid to the NCAA Division III Championship Tournament in the history of the program.

In early March, he also received National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) East All-District second team honors.

The sophomore is a graduate of Jamesville-Dewitt High, and is majoring in criminal justice at Morrisville State. He is the son of Margaret and Mickey Davis of Jamesville.
