George Mason’s Mark Davis has been named the Pioneer Electronics Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) men’s basketball Player of the Week for the week ending Feb. 2.

The award is the first-ever honor from the CAA for Davis, who averaged 19.0 points, 3.0 assists, 2.5 steals, and 2.5 rebounds last week to lead George Mason to double-digit victories over first-place University of North Carolina at Wilmington (UNCW) and Towson University. The junior guard scored 14 of his 17 points in the second half versus UNCW, shooting 41.7 percent from the floor and 50 percent from beyond the three-point line.

Against Towson, Davis shot 50 percent from the floor on 9-for-18 shooting, and scored a team-high 21 points, while tying his career-high with four assists. He added four steals and a personal-best two blocked shots in the contest.

Davis has started every game for the Patriots at either the guard or forward positions. He leads the team in points per game at 17.3, and averages 3.8 rebounds per contest. Davis also ranks first on the squad in steals with 38 and is third in assists with 28.

George Mason (11-8, 6-4 CAA) has won three consecutive games and sits in a five-way tie for second place in the conference standings. The Patriots play four of their next five games on the road beginning with a 7:30 p.m. game at Delaware tonight.
