Terence Davis Named to SEC Community Service Team
March 1, 2018

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – Ole Miss junior guard Terence Davis was named to the 2018 SEC Men’s Basketball Community Service Team, the league office announced Thursday. Actively involved in the Oxford community, Davis earned the recognition for the first time in his career.

Davis’ list of community service activities has grown throughout his three years as a Rebel. Participating in Reading with the Rebels, the Southaven, Mississippi, native visited local schools to read and encouraging literacy. He also interacted with children in Leap Frog, a local after-school program promotes good behavior in school. Davis co-hosted children from Quitman County and toured them around the Tuohy Center, encouraging healthy lifestyles through physical activity as part of The Marks Project.

Along with the rest of the Rebels, Davis spent the past Fourth of July at a community picnic in Jonestown, Mississippi, playing basketball and a variety of other games with the local children. The Rebels also hosted Dunk or Treat, the annual family fun event around Halloween that builds excitement towards basketball season. Davis met with fans before the event and also stuck around to sign autographs afterwards.  During the holiday season, Davis assisted Adopt-A-Basket, a coordination of donations around Thanksgiving that delivers meals to families in the Lafayette-Oxford-University (LOU) community. He also helped with Books and Bears, an initiative that collects toys and books for children in the community.

Not only is Davis a leader off the court, but he leads the Rebels in blocks (27) and rebounds (6.2 per game) on the floor. Davis ranks second on the team in scoring (13.6 ppg), while ranking third in steals (27). Davis has scored 20+ points in seven games and paces the team in field goals made (145) and three-pointers made (59). In his third year at Ole Miss, he is nearing 1,000 points for his career with 980 heading into Saturday’s regular season finale versus Vanderbilt. If he reaches the historic mark, Davis will become the 39th player to score 1,000 points as a Rebel.

This marks the 20th year for the SEC Community Service Team for men's basketball as well as for women's basketball. All 21 league-sponsored sports have had a Community Service Team since 2004, with at-large teams for men's and women's sports being chosen from 1999-2003. The SEC began this concept with a football community service team in 1994.
