UMass player credits 40-point game to mom shutting off his data plan

Thursday December 17th, 2015

UMass‘s Trey Davis had a scoring explosion in the team’s overtime win over New Orleans on Wednesday, and he credited his 40-point night to his mother, who shut off his mobile data after he played poorly against Florida Gulf Coast on Sunday, according to MassLive.

“Man, my mom turned my phone off after the game we just lost,” Davis, who made 18 straight free throws in Wednesday night’s win, said. “She was mad. Talking about my free throws and all this other stuff.

Davis is leading the team in scoring this season with 19.5 points per game, but struggled over its previous three games, including a 4-of-14 performance from the field against UCF.

Hopefully for the Minutemen, he can stay away from his phone as they prepare to face Kris Dunn and No. 14 Providence in their next game.
