Numbers Game With Anthony Davis

You don’t need me to tell you how good Anthony Davis is, so I’ll shut up and let the numbers do the talking.

Take a look at where he stands on the stats sheet:

— Currently leads the nation in blocks per game (4.7)

— Ranks 20th nationally in rebounds (10.3).

— Broke Kentucky single-season blocks record (89) after  only 19 games.

— Ranks seventh in the SEC in steals (1.7).

— Ranks 12th nationally in double-doubles (10).

— Ranks fifth nationally in field goal percentage (.630).

— One of two players in the SEC to rank in the top 15 in scoring and top five in rebounding.

— One of two players in the league to be averaging a double-double.

— Ranks fourth all-time among SEC freshmen in blocks

— He’ll enter the SEC’s top 20 single season blocks list tonight if he gets two

— He is the only player from the SEC in the last 15 seasons to reach 27 pts, 14 rebs and seven blocks in a single game.

— He is the first player to reach at least 27 pts, 14 rebs and seven blocks in a game since Herbert Hill of Providence in 2006-07 vs Syracuse.

    Davis will likely finish somewhere between #5-7 in blocked shots ALL TIME at UK in just one season. Pretty amazing. Also interesting is that Darius currently sits at #19.

    We hear arm length span all the time for Davis,
    Has anyone heard a vertical leap/height number?

    wait, so davis holds the UK single season blocks record, but is not even in the top 20 for the SEC? and only 4th among SEC freshmen all time?

    UK doesn’t have anyone in the SEC top 20 for single season blocks? And 4 SEC freshmen would have broken UK’s record?

    I am worried about tonight since we lost the last two times we were
    number 1.
    I am afraid my panties might get in a wad.
    Tyler any suggestions on how to avoid this dilemma?

    More amazing – he already has the UK all-time single season record BUT isn’t in the SEC’s top 20 single season record holders.

    Wow! Who were all these shot-blockers? I guess considering Varnado played (or is he still playing?) for MSU for about a decade I can see how this might have happened!

    You’d have thought UK players would have featured prominently and often on almost all SEC basketball achievement records. But, apparently, we don’t even have anyone in the top 20 for shots-blocked/season.

    Yet…

    If Kentucky played Navy’s schedule Davis would double Robinson’s single season record!

    Davis is a special player. His demeanor, ability, effort and awareness of the whole court are a marvel. Damn, how sweet would two years of him be?

    18) Yea David Robinson only had 45 points 14 rebounds and 10 blocks at UK his senior year. I guess those stats he rung up was due to lack of competition huh? I was at that game on 1/25/1987 and he was unreal. David Robinson was one of the best College players of all time, lets not jump our gun on a freshman that hasn’t played a full season yet. I love Davis too but I also have lived long enough to watch a few great centers, Lew Alcindor, Bill Walton, Bill Russell,Wilt Chamberlain etc.

    We will build up anthony davis to be the next Wilt Alcindor Robinson and we will all agree he is the the best man in all of the land with arms the size of SUV’s and a frame like a 72 Hemi Cuda …Its only right …This is UK

    One of the best things to look at with AD, is not only is he putting up the points but we also have five others that average in double figures. Most players that put up these kind of points are one man teams.
