That seems to be a thing of the past now.
Back on Dec. 11, Davis lit up the Lady Cubs for a career-high 43 points. For an encore on Friday, Davis joined the Lady Warriors' 1,000-point club, finishing with 32 points and 12 rebounds in a 62-41 victory.
Davis reached the milestone on a layup with 6:23 left in the fourth quarter. Lady Warrior coach Travis Barnes called timeout and an announcement was made to the crowd of her achievement.
Davis deflected the praise, saying her teammates deserve the credit for her achievement.
They're the biggest thing (in getting 1,000 points)," she said. "They're the ones who got me the ball. They're the ones who threw the ball up the court when I was open and got it in to me. I appreciate them so much. It's a team sport, and we do a lot of teamwork. We help each other out, and they helped me out tonight to get my 1,000th point."
Davis becomes the fifth player to achieve the milestone under Barnes' tenure as Cherokee County head coach. The other four 1,000-point club members are Anissa Anglin, Holly Wright, Kaitlyn Griffith and Davis's sister, Deidra.
Davis said it's "a privilege" to join her sister in the 1,000-point club.
"I've always looked up to my sister," she said. "At the end of last season, I told her I was nowhere close to 1,000 points, and I probably won't get it. That was always in the back of my mind. I wanted to be there with my sister. Now that I'm here, I'm really happy. It's good to be in that club girls like my sister and Kaitlyn Griffith. It's a great achievement. It's something none of us could have done without our teammates."
Barnes said he's proud of his senior forward's accomplishment.
"It is an elite club," he said. "Not many high school athletes can say they've scored 1,000 points in their career. I told her a couple of days before the game she was 31 points away. She wanted to do it at home. She didn't want to wait until the county tournament, and I think our girls did a good job of getting the ball to her. I'm really proud of her. She's really a hard-working girl."
For a while, it didn't look as if Davis would reach her milestone. The Class 4A, No. 8 Lady Warriors (14-4, 4-1 Area 11) struggled in the first quarter, holding only a 12-9 advantage.
Things changed in the second quarter, however, as the Lady Warriors went on a 21-10 run to take a 33-19 lead at halftime.
Davis had 15 points at the break, needing 16 more in the second half to reach 1,000 points. She got 17.
"With us in any sport, Alexandria is always a rival, and I think she's kind of stepped it up a little bit against them," Barnes said. "They're probably tired of seeing her. They had a good game plan starting out, trying to pack in the zone against her. I thought she might have trouble getting it, but we started shooting the ball a little better from the outside the second quarter on. She runs the floor well against them. We really look to get the ball up the court to her."
One of those players getting Davis the ball was Darbie Rosser, who finished with 10 points, six rebounds and five assists.
"Darbie is kind of a role player for us," Barnes said. "We want her to score. She's one of our best penetrators and best passers. She's just a good all-around solid player. She's pretty consistent with her play. She stepped it up tonight and really led us. We didn't have a good shooting night, and when you're not doing that, you've got to do other stuff. I think that's what she did."
Jessen Burk contributed 12 points, six boards and three assists. Emily Perry posted five points. Madison Brannon and Autumn Aloi both pulled down five boards.
Carly Edwards led the Lady Cubs (7-7, 1-4) with 14 points. Mendi Lash added 10 points, including three treys. Timberlyn Shurbutt finished with eight points.
Alexandria boys 77, Cherokee County boys 65
CENTRE - For the better part of three quarters, the Cherokee County Warriors matched the Alexandria Valley Cubs almost bucket for bucket.
But in the fourth quarter, the Valley Cubs finally put some distance in the game, connecting on six 3-pointers down the stretch to post a 77-65 victory.
Dakota Kelley did most of the damage for Alexandria (8-4, 3-2 Class 4A, Area 11). He sank four treys in the game, with three of those coming in the final quarter.
Kelley finished with 14 points.
"I thought we played well enough to win the game, but they just hit shots at the end and we didn't," Barnes said. "You've got to give credit to Alexandria. About every three they hit was with a hand in their face. I thought we defended them pretty well, but they just knocked down shots when they had to."
The Valley Cubs' hot 3-point shooting spoiled a 31-point, 15-rebound performance from Tony Pruitt. Pruitt scored 17 of his points in the second half.
"Tony is a special kid and he really carries our team," Barnes said. "He's a big nucleus of our offense. A lot of stuff runs through him. It's all effort all the time with him. He gets rebounds. He gets loose balls. He gets steals. He's in the huddle trying to pick us up. He's a real emotional player. He's a really solid kid. I'm proud of his effort tonight and his hustle. He kind of got our team sparked and got us going. Everybody kind of fed off his leadership tonight."
Alexandria held an 18-12 advantage at the end of the first quarter, but the Warriors (4-14, 1-4) rallied to take a 29-25 lead at halftime.
The Warriors were up 47-45 at the end of the third quarter and held a 54-52 lead with 5:56 left in the game on a 3-pointer by JoJo Diamond, but then the Valley Cubs began their 3-point barrage. They connected on four consecutive treys to take a 64-54 lead with 3:34 to go in the game.
That proved to be a deficit too steep for the Warriors to climb.
Diamond added 13 points, including three treys, to go along with five boards. Josh Higgins tallied eight points and five rebounds. Wade Griffith finished with seven points.
Gabe Marchal led Alexandria with 16 points. Terrell Gay netted 14 points. Colton Bundrum had 12 points and Luke Tucker finished with 10 points.
"When they've got five players at any point in time can score, that's just hard to defend," Barnes said. "They're a really well-rounded team."
