Sophomore Matt Davet put together back-to-back games of 20-plus points as the Emory men's basketball team split a road weekend against Washington University and the University of Chicago.
The 6-foot-7 Davet averaged a team-high 26.0 points, shot 53.3 percent (16-of-30) from the floor, including 46.2 percent (6-of-13) from three-point range, and converted 87.5 percent (14-of-16) of his free throw attempts as the Eagles closed out the weekend with an overall slate of 10-4, 1-2 in the UAA.
Davet tied for game scoring honors with 25 points (20 coming in the second half) in a 108-98 victory over the Bears of Wash U, converting seven-of-15 from the floor, three-of-eight from beyond the arc and eight-of-10 from the charity stripe. He followed that performance by topping all players with a career-best 27 points in an overtime setback to Chicago, knocking down nine-of-15 from the field, including three treys in five tries, while converting six-of-six from the foul line. He also led all players with 11 rebounds, which represented his second double-double of the season and third outing of 10 or more boards. His three-pointer with 11 ticks on the clock in regulation knotted the score at 84-84 and forced the extra session.
Through 14 games, Matt leads the conference in scoring with a 18.1 points-per-game average and is No. 2 on the squad in rebounding (6.7 rpg). He has scored in double figures on 12 occasions and has dialed up three straight and seven contests of 20 or more points.
