Detroit Mercy basketball star Antoine Davis joined one of college basketball's rarest clubs on Saturday, reaching 3,000 career points in Saturday's game. He's only the 11th DI men's basketball player to reach that historic marker.
Davis hit 3,000 on his 10th 3-pointer of the game on Saturday, an 82-80 OT loss to Charlotte.
Going into the day, Davis needed 35 points to hit 3K. He didn't waste time in getting a hot start, making five 3-pointers in the first half before duplicating the 3-point total in the second half. He finished with a season-high 36 points on 12-for-27 shooting.
