After his Tuesday night performance against Mercer, senior point guard Jack Gibbs leads the Atlantic-10 in scoring for the second straight season. AP journalist Steve Reed talked to Men's Basketball Head Coach Bob McKillop about Gibbs' potential. He writes:
Gibbs probably won't appear on 2017 NBA mock drafts, but he has been named to the Naismith Trophy 50-man watch list. He's also a candidate for the Bob Cousy Award as the country's top point guard and the John Wooden Award as college basketball's most outstanding player.
Gibbs scored 33 points on 8-of-14 shooting from 3-point range in Davidson's 78-57 road win against Mercer on Tuesday night.
After hopefully guiding the Wildcats back to the NCAA tourney for the first time since 2015, Gibbs has his eye on a pro career.
