Already the all-time leading scorer for the Walnut Ridge boys basketball program, senior VonCameron Davis has moved into even more elite territory.

Davis entered the Scots’ game against Columbus West on Feb. 4 needing 33 points to reach 2,000 for his career and that’s precisely what he scored in his team’s 105-56 victory, as Walnut Ridge improved to 15-4 overall and 12-1 in the City League-South Division.

“For him being a 2,000-point scorer, Walnut Ridge’s all-time leading scorer, it’s just a great accomplishment for a great kid,” coach Chuck Jefferson said. “He deserves everything he’s given and works extremely hard.”

Davis, a Kent State commit, has scored 507 points this season and is averaging 26.7 per game. He is the second area player this season to score his 2,000th career point, joining Harvest Prep’s Christopher Anthony.

Walnut Ridge would clinch a berth in the City League championship game with a win over Independence on Feb. 7.
