Jennifer Davis Named Big East Scholar-Athlete

Providence, R.I. -- The BIG EAST Conference today announced the 26 scholar athletes from its 13 member schools who will receive $2,000 each toward graduate studies.

Jennifer Davis, Providence College's first ever athlete to graduate with a perfect 4.0 GPA, has been chosen as a recipient and will use the scholarship at the University of Chicago-Illinois.

A Sociology major, Davis already has received a tuition-only scholarship to eventually obtain a doctorate degree.

While at Providence, Davis was a captain for the Lady Friars as a senior. She holds two PC records as she shattered the Rookie three-point records in her first year and also broke a BIG EAST Rookie record for most three's in a season.

In her career, she averaged 6.9 points in 76 games. As a sophomore, she played in only six games before being sidelined with a stress fracture. She tallied a career high of 27 points (2/9/94) against Georgetown which came in her freshman season. She also tallied a record setting eight three pointers against Rutgers that season (11/28/93).

She was named to the GTE CoSIDA District I Academic All-America Second Team in 1997.
