Davis and McGuirt Earn All-Big Ten Honors
Feb. 28, 2011
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - Senior Jori Davis was named Second Team All-Big Ten by the conference's coaches and media, the Big Ten office announced on Monday. Senior Andrea McGuirt was also honored as Indiana's Sportsmanship Award winner for the second-consecutive year.
Davis has had a stellar senior campaign during the 2010-11 season finishing as the conference's leading scorer in Big Ten games averaging 21.0 points per game. Down the regular season stretch, Davis averaged 24.6 points per game while shooting 47.9 percent from the field and 88.5 percent from the charity stripe in Indiana's last five contests.
For the year, Davis finished the regular season averaging 19.4 points and 5.6 rebounds per game to lead IU in both categories. The Rochester, N.Y., native scored in double-figures in 27 of 28 games this season, including the last 18 consecutively while leading the team in scoring 19 times.
Davis also has put her stamp in the Hoosier record books. She has tallied 544 points during the 2010-11 season, ranking her No. 6 on IU's all-time single season scoring list and it is her second-consecutive season to eclipse the 500-point mark, making her just the third player in school history to record 500 or more points in two seasons during a playing career in Bloomington. Davis has also connected on 172 free throws this season, which is the second-highest mark for a single season in IU history.
For her career, Davis has tallied 1,565 points, which ranks her eighth on IU's all-time scoring list. She is only the sixth player in school history to record over 1,500 points, 500 rebound (559) and 200 assists (238) during a career at Indiana and is currently ranked third all-time in career free throws made with 430.
McGuirt has averaged 3.4 points, 2.6 rebounds and 1.1 steals per game while starting in 13 games this season. The Atlanta, Ga., native was chosen as an individual who has distinguished themselves through sportsmanship and ethical behavior. Student-athletes chosen for the honor must be in good academic standing and have demonstrated good citizenship outside of the sports-competition setting. McGuirt has done just that as she graduated in December with a degree in Accounting from the Kelly School of Business and is currently in graduate school earning a master's in Accounting.
Indiana is seeded 10th in this week's Big Ten Tournament and will battle seventh-seeded Purdue on Thursday, March 3 at 2 p.m. ET at Conseco Fieldhouse in Indianapolis. The game will be aired on the Big Ten Network.
