San Diego State Aztecs Get Tulane’s Josh Davis

Spruce Derden-USA TODAY Sports

Although some talented players will no longer be on the San Diego State Aztecs for the 2013-14 college basketball season, the team has just landed Tulane’s Josh Davis, according to CBSSports.com.

Davis will be a great addition to the team, since he did put up monster numbers in his junior year. That is, of course, if you think 17.6 points per game and 10.7 rebounds per game is considered as monster numbers. Davis also shot 49.2 percent from the field.

Since Jamaal Franklin and Chase Tapley will no longer be on the team, this is huge for the Aztecs. Who knows if San Diego State will be as good as it was this past year or in previous years, but Davis should make an instant impact for the team.

San Diego State finished last season with a 23-11 record and made it to the round of 32 in the 2013 NCAA Tournament, before getting beat by Florida Gulf Coast.

Although the Conference USA isn’t quite the MWC, that should not be a problem for Davis, who broke out in a big way in his junior season.

According to the CBS Sports report linked above, Gonzaga and Ohio State were also after Davis, so there is definitely something that all three of these teams saw in Davis.

Hopefully, Davis is able to be a force for San Diego State, but he will only have one year of eligibility to make his mark, so you would think that the Aztecs would use him quite a bit. That is usually how transfer players work.
