Anthony Davis Talks Kentucky

Anthony Davis and his Perspectives Charter team, took the court last night against Meadowlake High (Dayton, Oh) in the Good Samaritan Flyin’ To The Hoop tournament in Dayton, Ohio.

What Anthony didn’t expect was a visit from his future Coach, John Calipari and Assistant Coaches Orlando Antigua and Kenny Payne. Just a couple of hours earlier, Calipari and his Wildcats demolished a helpless LSU team, 82-44.

“I didn’t even know that but I really appreciate them giving me the support,” said Davis, who chatted with Calipari and Payne for a few minutes after the contest. “I just can’t wait to get there to be with them.”

Even though Anthony didn’t expect Coach Calipari, he sure didn’t disappoint anyone with his performance as he poured in a game high 32 points, grabbed 18 boards, 6 blocked shots, 3 assists and 1 steal.

Even with the stellar numbers, Davis didn’t want to talk about his 6-11 from the free throw line. An area that Coach Calipari worked on with Davis after the game.

“I don’t even want to talk about it,” Davis said of his 6 of 11 from the line. “I have to work on my free throws. He told me to keep it chest high and follow through from there. I’ll work on it.”

Davis was the talk of the Summer in 2010, growing from 6-3 to 6-10 in less then a year. Initially a guard, he is able to bring that guard ball handling skills to his inside game, making his perfect for the dribble-drive offense of Coach Calipari.

As good as he is, Anthony knows he still has a lot to learn.

“I just want to get better and whatever it is, I want to do it to help them win a national championship,” Davis said. “Me and Mike Gilchrist talk a lot and we keep saying we can’t wait to get there and help them get that eighth (National Championship) banner, if they don’t get it this year.”

Go Cats!!
