Antoine Davis could pass Pitt’s gun if he continues to score goals at the end of the season

After a season-high 42 points against the International Cobalt Association on January 21, Detroit Mercy guard Antoine Davis became the second-leading scorer in men’s basketball history. The only name left to chase is LSU’s “Pistol” Pete Maravich, who Davis trails by 393 points with 11 regular season — and potential postseason — games remaining.

So we ask the question: can Davis become the all-time leading scorer in men’s ring history? Is this really on the cards? What does it take to make history? Let’s break it all down here:

Basic math

With 11 regular season games and at least one Horizon League game, Davis had to average 394 points in 12 games, with an average of 32.8 points per game down the stretch of the house. In 2022-23, Davis maintained an average of 27 PPG through 20 games played. However, he has scored at least 32 points four times this season, including the last three games as of this writing.

I look forward

The Titans only have the remaining Horizon League opponents on the schedule. This can be useful for projecting forward by looking back and breaking down Davis’ historic performance against each foe, going back to his freshman season in 2018-19.

Making history: The moment Davis moved to No. 2 on the men’s basketball career scoring charts

Northern Kentucky (February 23): Norse has given Davis the most trouble of his career, with a presence with an average of just 21.7 points In 10 professional meetings. He’s held NKU under 20 points in five of those games, including a 10-point night in February 2020 that nearly snapped his career streak of scoring by double figures (131 games and counting).

Wright State (February 25): Davis was the most ambivalent against Wright State. In nine games, he scored as few as 10 points and as many as a career-high 48 points in his senior season. When it all adds up, it is with an average of 23.9 points against raiders.

It looks like Davis will either have to increase his scoring average by several points for the next month or hope the Giants can make a deep run in the conference tournament and become the leading scorer in D-I history. It’s a grueling climb, but a few hot nights can get you to the top of the mountain.
