Antoine Davis finishes shy of passing Maravich scoring mark

Washington, March 3 (U.S.): Antoine Davis beats everyone except “Pistol” Pete. The Detroit Mercy star finished four points shy of overtaking Pete Maravich as the NCAA scoring leader, hitting 22 in a brutal 71-66 loss to Youngstown State in the Horizon League championship.

Davis needed 26 points to break Maravich’s hallowed mark that has stood for more than 50 years, according to the Associated Press.

But after picking his fourth foul with 3:36 left, the 6-foot guard didn’t drive to the basket and then missed four three-pointers—one of which was wide open—in the final two minutes of the game. Intense game.

After the final buzzer, tempers flared briefly and Davis, who had been pestered by Youngstown State defenders all night, had to be restrained from going after a Penguins player. There was some debris thrown at him from the student section as he was being moved off the floor.

Unless Detroit Mercy gets an unexpected postseason bid, Davis finishes with 3,664 points in five seasons. Maravich racked up 3,667 points in just three years while playing for his father, Bryce, and he did so before there was a 3-point streak or shot clock.
