Douglas Davis, welcome to the 1,000 point club.

"It feels good to get to 1,000 but this day would have been terrible if we had lost the game. I am glad we got the win and 1,000 was the icing on the cake." - D. Davis

On Tuesday night, Douglas Davis (pictured above with his parents and a bouquet of flowers) became the 27th Princeton player - and the first as a junior since Kit Mueller in 1990 - to reach the 1,000 point mark.

Here's the full list of 1K Tigers. Davis needs five points to pass Will Venable for 26th all-time and could become the 15th Tiger in the 1,100 point club by the end of the season if his 13.2 ppg scoring average holds.

1,546 Christopher J. “Kit” Mueller, 1987-91

While it is technically correct to say that Douglas Davis and Kit Mueller (and probably some others) entered the 1000 point club in their Junior Year, it also is their respective Third Year of playing in a Tiger uniform.

As is well known, for many years freshmen were not eligible for varsity play, so for these players, it was even more difficult to enter the 1000 Point Club in the Junior Year. And for most (if not all) of these players, there was no three point shot.

Not taking anything away from the achievement-- and Doug's play-- just adding an asterisk to the list.

Understood, but freshman became eligible in 1978. That's 32 seasons of basketball and only two Princeton players have done what DDD and Kit have - an achievement unto itself.

Davis, Mueller, Bradley and Brian Taylor are the only Princeton players to hit 1K as juniors.

Bill Bradley & Brian Taylor did it in two years.

I wonder if you would be willing to update this list from time to time, perhaps each time he surpasses someone ahead of him (or if that is too often, each time he moves up to 20th, 15th, etc.). It seems pretty certain that he will finish his career in the top 10, with a decent chance of finishing in the top 5.

I'll update this post after each game and continue to update Davis' rise in my postgame notes.

There is another element here: DDD joined a program in disarray, with a new coach. As I recall it was Coach J's second year, but his first recruiting class. I was at DDD's first game, and I can tell you, to me he was an infusion of hope for the future. All the better that the entire program has improved. Obviously it is a team effort, but DDD got the party started.

As I wrote in the PAW piece, Davis had to be sold on the promise of the future by Coach Johnson and his staff in a way that more recent recruits like T.J. Bray and Ben Hazel didn't have to be.

Davis and classmate Patrick Saunders probably won't realize it until they're several years removed from their playing days, but the "leap of faith" they took as seniors in high school is an enormous part of Princeton's resurgence.
