SR: Which NBA player do you like to model your game after and why?
WD: I don’t know if I necessarily model my game after anyone, but my favorite player is Kobe (Bryant). I just like his skill set and his different moves to get open for a shot.
SR: Which family member or friend introduced you to basketball?
WD: My dad first introduced me, just working with me on my shots. As I got older, I started hanging with my brother, who was already playing, and I started following him.
SR: When you have free time between classes, where do you like to hang out and relax?
WD: I go straight to the Boko’s Lounge and sleep.
SR: Do you have any pre-game rituals? And if so, what are they?
WD: We always eat at Saltgrass Steak House before home games, and we always like to say the Lord’s Prayer right before the game.
SR: What was your personal goal and team expectations going into the WAC?
WD: Personal goals: They do the preseason rankings, and I was picked on the second team, I believe, but just following in those footsteps and where people think I should be at and exceed higher than that. I wouldn’t say we fell completely off our goal as a team. It’s not too late to win the tournament in the WAC.
SR: What is your favorite apparel off the basketball court?
WD: I always wear Adidas stuff.
SR: Which artist or band do you listen to to motivate and prepare yourself for game day?
WD: I always listen to Wale’s “Focused” before the game.
SR: What does it mean to you to have Bobcat Pride?
WD: It’s important because a lot of people have been in my position before, and I just like to live up to the expectations that have been set before me.
SR: Is there any significant meaning behind your No. 10 jersey?
WD: When I first ever started playing basketball, I was No. 10 in the YMCA. Then I started playing AUU in third grade, and I was No. 10. I didn’t pick it. They gave it to me. I had 10 for a long time, then in high school my coach promised me No. 10, and at college they promised me 10 as well. I’ve pretty much been 10 my whole life.
SR: Favorite basketball memory?
WD: It would probably have to be my high school senior year when we should have won the McDonald’s invitational tournament in Houston, but we came up a little short against DeSoto.
SR: If basketball was not an option at Texas State, what other sport would we see Wesley Davis thrive in?
WD: I would probably try and run track.
