CNU's Barbara Davis: the brains of the operation

We knew that Christopher Newport senior forward Barbara Davis is good for 8.6 points and 8.8 rebounds a game. But here's her most impressive average - a 3.92 GPA in psychology. In fact, it's so impressive that on Friday, Davis was presented with the Division III women's basketball Elite 88 award for having the highest cumulative grade-point average at one of the NCAA's 88 finals sites.

Davis accepted the award in Bloomington, Ill., a few hours before the 11th-ranked Captains were to take on No. 2 Amherst in the Division III national semifinals Friday at 6 p.m. A former star at Stonewall Jackson High, the 6-0 Davis is the leading rebounder remaining in the tournament.

The senior plans to attend graduate school to become a sports psychologist. She was selected to attend the prestigious "So You Want to be a Coach" program, held at the Division I Final Four and the WBCA National Convention.
