NAME: James Davenport

GRADE: Junior

SPORT: Basketball

SCHOOL: Loyola

At one time, the Loyola Dons basketball program served as the measuring stick for all Baltimore metro area private schools. In the last decade, however, the Don's mystique had fallen, hitting rock bottom during the 2003-04 season. That year Loyola went winless in the MIAA/BCL, finishing with a 7-24 overall record.

Last season began an apparent turnaround, led by a new, young coach Josh Davalli. Another key piece of the winning puzzle: junior James Davenport.

Davenport, known hustle and determination, averaged 10 points and six rebounds per game as a sophomore during the Dons run to an 8-6 record in the Baltimore Catholic league.

Standing 6-foot-2, a shooting guard, Davenport had a big summer, scoring 24 and 20 points against Gilman and New Town respectively in the McDonogh summer league.

"He plays solid defense and runs the floor well," Davalli said. "We'll be counting on James to make a big contribution again next year."
