The Slam Dunk contest, along with the men’s and women’s 3-point championship, will be held at Grand Canyon University and broadcast live on ESPN.

Davis is the first Raiders player to compete in the contest. In 2014 the NCAA selected seven participants and had an online voting contest called the “Dark Horse Dunker” in which Wright State’s Jerran Young was a finalist.

Davis appeared in 68 games with 41 starts during his Wright State career, scoring 639 points and 216 rebounds.
