  • Davis was the best outside shooter for the Mavericks this year and excelled in a number of “team player” statistics, making him the most well rounded player of the season.
    Offensively, Davis spent most of the season in the field and toeing the 3-point line.
    He sunk 40 total 3-pointers, far more than any player on the team (with #35 Michael Behm sinking a second best 13-of-32) which provided the lion’s share of Davis’ 207 total season points, good for second most on the team. He shot the ball more than any Maverick with 209 total attempts, 142 of them from the 3-point line.
    There is plenty of room for improvement, as Davis shot only .281 from the three, and only .507 from inside. 
    Davis led the team in assists (56), assists per game (2.8) was fourth in defensive rebounds (40), tied for third in offensive rebounds (12) and fourth in total rebounds (52) with a .769:1 defensive rebound ratio. Davis showed his defensive skills in the steals category notching an impressive 48 steals on the season with 2.4 steals per game.
    Davis was also second in turnovers (50) suggesting some improvements can be made to his ball handling.
    “If I was him, I’d spend some Mr. Miyagi time at the three point line this off season. ‘Secret to basketball, make power of whole ball fit inside one hoop.’ If he sinks just a couple more three’s we’ve got a better record and a trip to state,” said one voter.
    “Had a great year shooting the basketball. The two stats Damien didn’t lead in were steals and assists and Caleb led in both of those,” said another voter.
    “Davis created a lot of opportunities for the big guys (56 assists on the year) and played solid defense,” said another voter.
    “Caleb is our leader, by far,” said Head Coach Nick Perez. “He’s our best shooter, he’s a team player and he plays the game for the rest of the guys. I expect Caleb to do good things next year. I just wish he was a little taller,” laughed Perez.
