FROM SPECIAL REPORTS
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. - Ole Miss senior guard Terence Davis was named to the 2019 SEC Men's Basketball Community Service Team, the league office announced Monday. Actively involved in the Oxford community, Davis earned the recognition for the second time in his career.
Since arriving on campus in 2015, Davis has participated in Adopt-a-Basket, which gives food items to families in need during the Thanksgiving season. As part of Reading with the Rebels, he has visited several local schools to promote the importance of reading while sharing some of his favorite books. Davis also went to the local Oxford Boys and Girls Club, where he spoke to the middle school boys about behavior and reading before joining them for a pick-up game of basketball.
During the month of December, the Ole Miss men's basketball team visited Blair E. Batson Children's Hospital to spread holiday cheer. Davis interacted with the kids there, which included giving a child a wagon ride around the hospital. Finally, Davis hosted a patient from LeBonheur Children's Hospital as a "Rebel for a Day" at the team's practice facility. He spent time sharing information about his daily schedule and favorite things about being an Ole Miss Rebel.
This marks the 21st year for the SEC Community Service Team for men's basketball as well as for women's basketball. All 21 league-sponsored sports have had a Community Service Team since 2004, with at-large teams for men's and women's sports being chosen from 1999-2003. The SEC began this concept with a football Community Service Team in 1994.
Davis and the Rebels return to the hardwood Thursday (March 14), facing Alabama in the second round of the SEC Tournament. Tipoff from Nashville is set for 6 p.m. on SEC Network.
