Northwestern State senior guard Shamir Davis, a key in the Demons’ status as the nation’s second-highest scoring offense, earned honors Monday for his game-high 20-point performance last week in a win over Louisiana Tech.

Davis won the Louisiana Sports Writers Association state basketball Player of the Week honor, along with being named College Sports Madness’ player of the week among Southland Conference competitors. The Demons rank second nationally with an 85-points per game scoring average, one of seven top 70 NCAA Division I statistical team rankings for NSU.

The 6-foot guard from Shreveport-Huntington hit 8-of-12 shots from the floor, sank 4-of-5 at the free throw line, grabbed five rebounds, made two steals and had an assist as NSU topped Louisiana Tech 89-83. Davis led five Demons in double figures as NSU shot 55 percent and held Louisiana Tech to 34.5 percent aim.

The outcome snapped the Bulldogs’ seven-game winning streak and moved the Demons to 4-3, with the losses at LSU (102-95), Texas A&M (78-65) and Oklahoma (69-65).

Davis will lead NSU into action Saturday afternoon at 2 in Prather Coliseum against Missouri Valley.
