Mickey Davis

Basketball ∙ Monaca

 

 

 

 

Mickey Davis was such a standout basketball player at Monaca High School and Duquesne University that he would probably have been elected to the Beaver County Sports Hall of Fame even if he hadnít played professionally for the Milwaukee Bucks in the NBA. Mickey, 6'-7" and 205 pounds, was a three year starter during his high school days at Monaca. In 1968 he was named MVP in Section 6 and set a Monaca record with 515 points in a season. As a junior he received All State honorable mention and as a senior and played for the West Penn team in the preliminary game of the Pittsburgh Roundball Classic. Mickey then went to Duquesne University, where he led the Dukes in scoring both as a sophomore and as a junior. In his junior year, he averaged 19.2 points, 6 assists and 10 rebounds per game. Mickey, who was a swingman playing both guard and forward, then opted to forego his senior season of eligibility and signed with the Pittsburgh Condors, where he languished in obscurity during the 1972 season. Fortunately, he was picked up by the Milwaukee Bucks in that yearís NBA draft and immediately saw considerable action. His most memorable game as a Buck was against the Boston Celtics in the 1973 playoffs. He also had a good season in 1974, averaging 13 points per game. He was released by the Bucks in 1976. After retirement Mickey served as regional sales manager for the Miller Brewing Company for the central third of the nation in Elm Grove, Wisconsin.
