ALL-CENTURY TEAM MEMBER

Glen Davis was at his best during the Tigers' 2006 season when he was named Southeastern Conference Player of the Year and a first-team All-American for the Wooden Award.

Davis starred as the Tigers captured the SEC regular-season championship with a 14-2 record and then went on to defeat four teams en route to the NCAA Final Four. LSU beat Iona in the opening round, rallying from a halftime deficit, and then used a three-pointer in the final seconds to defeat Texas A&M to advance to the regional semifinals.

There the Tiger magic and Davis' personality was on display to the nation as he helped lead LSU to upsets over No. 1-ranked Duke and an overtime win over No. 9 Texas that got LSU to its first NCAA Final Four in 20 years. The Tigers jumped out on Texas early in overtime and when Davis came down on a break and shot a three-pointer that broke the Longhorns' back, CBS Sports announcer Dick Enberg said with a question in his voice, "Glen Davis for 3? Oh my!”

Davis would earn all-region honors for his play in the NCAA Tournament in a year in which he led the SEC in both scoring (18.6) and rebounding (9.7). He would return to LSU for his junior season and despite injuries and intense pressure to perform, he still again led the league in rebounding (10.2) and earned SEC First-Team honors. He was a second round pick of the NBA's Boston Celtics in the 2007 NBA Draft and became an NBA champion in his first year with the team.
