Hoops: Neuman-Goretti's Davis commits to Towson

Neumann-Goretti's John Davis, a 6-foot-5, 200-pound senior forward, has committed to play basketball at Towson.

"It's a place where I think I can really progress as a player," he said. "They have an up-tempo style, just like at Neumann-Goretti."

Last season, while helping the Saints go 28-3 and win their third straight PIAA Class AAA state championship, Davis earned first-team all-Catholic League honors.

The 18-year-old, who lives near 5th and Washington in South Philly, also had scholarship offers from Boston University, Delaware, Florida Atlantic, La Salle, and Robert Morris.

Davis, who plans to major in business or sports management at Towson, averaged about 13 points and 11 rebounds last year for N-G.
