The Players to Watch for SMU

Kendric Davis 5-11 180 Guard

Kendric Davis has a 38.0 Player Efficiency Rate (PER) this season. He is among the best in the conference and even in the country as far as his on-the-court contributions.

Offensive Breakdown

Kendric Davis attempted 0.214% of his shots from three point range. He is not considered a frequent shooter from three point range. Kendric Davis shot 0.556% from long range this season. He is a sharpshooter from long range and his ability to shoot three point shots must be respected. Kendric Davis shot 0.515% inside the perimeter. He is not a remarkable scorer inside the perimeter. When he puts up a shot, there is meaning to it. It is of great consequence and he is able to score.

This season, when shots were missed, Kendric Davis is certainly not there to help his team get a second chance opportunity.He is one of the best at creating scoring opportunities for his teammates. He is an average player when it comes to his ability to avoid committing turnovers.

Defensive Breakdown

Kendric Davis has shown that he may be an elite defensive player going into this season and the expectation is that it should not change. He is an average defensive rebounder who is serviceable in his role. He is not a shot blocker. An aggressive defender who is among the best at successfully forcing live ball turnovers in every which way. He learned the Art of the Steal.

Feron Hunt 6-8 195 Forward

Feron Hunt has a 27.0 Player Efficiency Rate (PER) this season. He is among the best in the conference and even in the country as far as his on-the-court contributions.

Defensive Breakdown

Feron Hunt has shown that he may be an elite defensive player going into this season and the expectation is that it should not change.
