Mike Davis - Head Basketball Coach at Texas Southern University for Houstonia Magazine

When I got this assignment, my initial thought was Mike Davis? Mike Davis who took over for Bobby Knight and was almost a national champion at Indiana Mike Davis? Mike Davis who was dangerously close to signing Boogie Cousins to the University of Alabama-Birmingham Mike Davis? Yep, that Mike Davis who has been quietly killing it in the SWAC winning the conference 3 of 4 years and leading the Tigers to the NCAA tournament in two of them. Cool, I get to meet Mike Davis and chop it up about Jared Jefferies and Tom Coverdale. But of course, that's not how it went. He was a super cool dude and amenable to all my ideas but he's a D-1 basketball coach trying to prepare his team for an all away game non-conference schedule. Ain't nobody got time for Starghill saying "hold the ball with your left hand and look to your right." Mike Davis has a team to coach. Big shout to Monica for coming through with the assignment!
