In a matchup that featured two of the top teams in the league—the Blue Devils and the Monstars—Mike Davis had to hit a fadeaway 3-pointer to send the game into overtime. The extra period featured back-and-forth action with Mike Davis stealing the show in overtime once again, as the Blue Devils came away with the 96-93 win.
“Like I told them from the get-go, we have to spread it out and take it to the hoop, hit our free throws,” Blue Devils Zaccari Graham said. “We got the MVP in Mike.”
Davis proved he was in a league of his own on Tuesday night with 44 points on 16-of-25 shooting and 6-of-13 from three. He proved once again that he is a premier closer in the league by taking advantage of Davon Pratt being out and leading his team in more ways than one.
Kintwon Miles continued to dominate regardless of the loss, scoring 30 points on 11-of-17 shooting and was clutch late hitting big free throws. When Miles is in a rhythm the Monstars are a different team, which the Blue Devils saw late. With two minutes left, the Monstars were up four points until Davis took over and scored six straight including an and-one layup late in the fourth quarter.
The Blue Devils look to continue their hot streak going against Stranger Danger, who is coming off a tough overtime loss. If the Blue Devils are looking to continue this winning streak they are going to need some scoring outside Davis. Their second-leading scorer only had 15 points. The Monstars, on the other hand, look to bounce back after losing two straight to No Limit and the Blue Devils when they face Team Moose.
“MVP Mike Davis, that’s all that needs to be said,” Blue Devils Chris Rudzinski and Zaccari Graham both said.
