Anthony Davis Returns With A Vengeance

After being out of action due to a thumb injury, Kentucky’s 2011 commit Anthony Davis returned with a vengeance as he scorched his opponent Tuesday night with 23 points, 14 steals, 5 blocks and 9 rebounds.

Davis showed no signs of layoff as he was right back into the groove that has analysts salivating over his upside. ESPN went as far as to say they believe he will end as the No. 1 overall recruit for the Class of 2011, a position currently occupied by Austin Rivers, a Duke commit and son of former NBA player and current NBA Coach, Doc Rivers of the Boston Celtics.

Davis’ return didn’t come without some sacrifice as he knew he would have to play through some contact that wouldn’t normally bother him if it wasn’t for the thumb injury.

“I knew I had to adjust to playing through the pain because my hand got hit a couple of times during the game, but I had to stick it out to get the ‘W,’” Davis said.

Davis sat out the entire fourth quarter and the Wolves maintained their lead as junior forward Manuel Whitfield had 13 points in the win.

“If we can execute as we did tonight then we can win games in the postseason,” Davis said.

Here are the highlights from Davis’ performance on Tuesday. Enjoy
