Theo Davis put up a nice round goose egg in his debut performance for the Bearcats on Saturday. The Gonzaga transfer was ineligible last semester per NCAA regulations, but many expect him to provide Binghamton with a major upgrade for the second half of the season.
Early returns on Davis have not been particularly auspicious. In his first game of the season, the Bearcats' 86-80 loss to Manhattan, Davis shot 0-of-5 from the field and turned the ball over four times in just 14 minutes. While it's inadvisable to read into one game's worth of play from an athlete who has been hampered by injuries, suspensions, and ineligibility restrictions, repeat performances are not going to cut it. Jaan Montgomery is not a scoring threat, leaving Reggie Fuller as the only interior offensive presence for the Bearcats. Binghamton needs Davis to give the frontcourt depth and balance.
