WVU 2022 Signee Josiah Davis Drops 34 Points in National Championship Win



Over the weekend, West Virginia 2022 signee Josiah Davis dropped 34 points for Teays Valley High School in their NACA National Championship game. Teays Valley defeated Maryville Christian (TN) on Friday night, 73-65.

Davis finished with 34 points, 11 rebounds, five assists, three steals and two blocks. On his spectacular championship performance, the future Mountaineer guard shot 11-of-22 from the field.

Davis spoke with WV Sports Now to reflect on winning the national championship in his senior season.

“One of the greatest feelings as a high school basketball player, the feeling is so real,” he said. “The team and I have had a hell of a year with injuries and sickness and other things. Not a lot of people would expect us to do what we did especially with a schedule that we had for a Christian school but God stood by our side and allowed us to bring home the championship trophy and banner!”

Through 25 games, Davis led the Lions with 19.0 points per game. On top of that, Davis averaged 9.4 rebounds, 7.3 assists, 2.2 steals and 0.9 blocks.

Davis’ future teammate at WVU, Josiah Harris, won the OHSAA District Title on Friday night, as Richmond Heights defeated Cornerstone Christian, 83-63. Harris finished with 22 points.

The future looks bright for this 2022 class as they continue to succeed in their postseason play this month.
