Tennessee’s Rennia Davis was named this season’s first SEC Player of the Week leading the Lady Vols to a 3-0 start to the Kellie Harper era.
The Jacksonville, Florida, native earned the honor posting 16.7 points per game and 8.3 rebounds per game in the Lady Vols’ first three games.
Davis’ strong opening week came to a fantastic finish Monday night as Davis led the Lady Vols past No. 16 Notre Dame scoring 33 points and grabbing 10 rebounds in the 74-63 win.
It was Davis’ second double-double of the young season as the junior scored 13 points and grabbed 10 rebounds in the season opener against ETSU.
Davis averaged 14.9 points per game last year as a sophomore, but the junior will be relied on more heavily this season. Her role got even bigger Monday afternoon when it was announced leading scorer Zaay Green was lost for the season due to injury.
Davis and the Lady Vols will return to action Thursday as Tennessee hosts Tennessee State to Thompson-Boling Arena. Tip-off is set for 7 p.m. ET.
