WCC Preseason Power Rankings: No. 5, Stacy Davis, Pepperdine

Height: 6–6
Weight: 245 pounds
Class: Senior
2014–15 stats: 32 games, 15.7 points, 7.8 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 1.1 blocks, 0.9 steals, 47% FG.

Maybe the foremost practitioner of Charles Barkely unstoppability currently on tap in college basketball. There is little chance of stopping Stacy Davis once he gets an edge, 18 feet in. (And for good measure, dude sank 15 three-pointers last season.)

Put simply, Davis is the type of force referred to in scouting reports as a “load.” He is also a very good place to begin for why expectations are the highest they’ve been in recent memory for Pepperdine, which has steadily been building over the past few seasons.

A reigning two-time First Team All-WCC player, Davis will be a leader for the Waves this season.
