Keep an eye on Mount Rainier freshman Adrian Davis

He is only a freshman, but Mount Rainier guard Adrian Davis is quickly becoming one of the top boys basketball players in the area.

His play this season is a big reason why the young Rams (6-4) are growing into contenders in the SPSL North.

“For the most part he’s been a grown man, just like a senior,” Mount Rainier coach Brian Johnson said. “He’s been unbelievable. He’s leading us in scoring, leading us in steals, a few different categories. Every game he’s been putting the ball in the basket.”

Through nine games, Davis is averaging 19 points per game. He scored 26 points in his first varsity game against Kent-Meridian and has already had performances of 28 (Auburn Riverside) and 33 (Issaquah).

In the title game of the Les Schwab Christmas Classic, he did show a little frustration when things didn’t go his way late during a 74-67 victory over Kentlake, but it provided a learning experience for a young player with a lot of talent.
