Our Savior New American Soph Has Decent Game

Reporter Mike Sullivan has a story about Our Savior New American sophomore Steele Davis, who provides much of the offensive spunk near the rim for Ron Stelzer's Pioneers basketball program in Centereach, New York ...

It wasn't long ago when Our Savior New American fielded some of the best talent both locally and nationally. Through the hard work of the coaching staff, the Pioneers are attempting to move back to that elite status.

A player who could perhaps move them in the right direction is Steele Davis, a 6-foot-8, 215-pound forward. We've had a few opportunities to watch his individual game and understand his strengths and the areas he needs to work on.

We'll also have a chance to watch him play a couple more times this week. Here is our previous evaluation of his individual game:

Davis scores most of his points near the rim. He does his most consistent work following up missed shots or running the floor in transition.

When he tries to get too fancy by hanging near the three-point line, defenders usually swarm and look for an opportunity to steal the ball.

Perhaps in the future we'll see Davis improved with his handle and able to beat his man to the basket with the rock. Currently, he's tough to handle in the paint.

Some new guard play has helped the Pioneers recently. So we're looking forward to watching some new backcourt talent.

STEELE DAVIS' EARLY LIST OF SCHOOLS: Syracuse, South Carolina, Kentucky, Maryland, Memphis, Miami of Florida, Florida, Georgia, Southern California, Virginia Tech, Georgetown, and DePaul.
