Davenport was a two-year starter for the Tigers after transferring from Georgia Highlands College, where he was a junior college All-American. He was the team’s second-leading scorer as a junior and senior behind Martin. Davenport averaged 13.3 points as a junior and 13.1 points as a senior. He led the team in rebounding both seasons, grabbing 6.1 as a junior and 6.9 as a senior.
