Wounded Sri Lanka take on confident Nepal to stay alive

Former Seton Hall star Dre Davis has committed to play next season at Ole Miss, his agent told ESPN.

Davis committed while on a visit to Ole Miss, according to his agent, Noah Reisenfeld of Young Money APAA Sports.

Davis brings four seasons of experience -- two at Louisville and two at Seton Hall -- and built a portfolio along the way as one of the top players in the NCAA transfer portal.

He's started 77 games and scored 1,146 points in his career. That includes a standout 2023-24 season, when he led the Pirates to a third-place Big East finish while averaging 15.0 points and 5.9 rebounds.

Davis' best work this year came in the NIT, leading the Pirates to the championship. He scored 18 points in the NIT final win over Indiana State, including the game-winning basket with 16 seconds left.

Davis also scored 19 points and grabbed 9 rebounds in the NIT semifinal win over Georgia.

Davis played his first two years at Louisville, where he started 40 games and averaged 7.5 points as a freshman and 7.4 points as a sophomore.

He averaged 9.6 points per game in 2022-23 at Seton Hall, before breaking out this season.

He'll play next year at Ole Miss for Chris Beard, who went 20-12 in his debut season in Oxford.
