Tennessee State University women’s basketball alum I’mani Davis was inducted to the Union Basketball and Track Hall of Fame Friday night in Tulsa, Okla.
Davis, a four-year letterwinner with the Lady Tiger basketball program from 2013-2017 was inducted to the Hall of Fame during a ceremony between the girls’ varsity and boys’ varsity games in the Union Multipurpose Activity Center. A reception for the inductees was held before the game.
“The feeling is so amazing to be inducted into your high school HOF,” said Davis. “To have people recognize and appreciate what you were able to accomplish is a blessing and I’m so grateful! When I was growing up I use to see people I knew, or knew of get inducted into their HS Hall of Fame. I really looked up to them and hoped that one day it would be me. Six years after graduating high school, I did it! Such a blessing and an honor and I can’t thank Union High School enough for a great four years filled with great memories!”
Davis had a stellar career at Tennessee State. As a sophomore, she helped guide the Lady Tigers to the 2015 OVC Tournament Championship and a berth in the NCAA Women’s Basketball Tournament.
Two weeks after the team’s NCAA tournament game, Davis started working out with the track team. When she captured gold in the high jump at the 2015 Outdoor Championships to help the Tigerbelles take first place, she became first student-athlete to win two OVC titles in the same year for Tennessee State.
The Tulsa, Okla. native finished her TSU career ranked 13th in scoring with 1,133 points, 7th in rebounds (708), 13th in assists (201), and 6th in steals (192).
Prior to coming to Tennessee State, Davis had success in basketball as well as track and field at Union High School. A three-time all-conference player in basketball she also claimed the 2012 Oklahoma 6A state championship in the high jump. At the same meet, she placed sixth in the 400 meters and ninth in the long jump.
