If his start has any bearing on his total experience as a Dawson College Buc, Chris Davidson can feel pretty happy with how the future looks. In 13 official games he has started 8, with the healthy stat line of 9.2 points4.5 boards, 1.2 assists and 1.3 steals per game, and great shooting numbers with near 40% field goals made.

Having adapted to Montana life, Chris is settling in to school and the overall experience. “Glendive is an amazing place”, commented the Freshman. “Coach and my teammates, the support network, the teachers, it’s all very high quality. I can certainly use this as my platform for future success both in school and on the hardwood”.

With the pressure on the Bucs to continue their recent success under Coach Joe Peterson, Chris can expect to be the beneficiary of a work schedule and academic expectation that will not slacken off. “Coach makes it very clear: Student first, athlete second, and so I am adjusting to that shift in mindset and can see that it is supposed to help me in life and in basketball.

It’s an adjustment sped up by the 1-match suspension Chris incurred after missing class following a particularly heavy training schedule. “I thought I would just have a lie in. I was smashed. I don’t think we really know that much about what hard training is like in Australia. We practice extremely hard and I let me team down by missing class. Coach was really good about it. Understood my situation, but I still had to serve my time. This is how you build a culture and how you build better people. I’m really grateful for the experience. it taught me a lot.”

With an arsenal that includes his trademark slashes to the ring, his athleticism around the basket and his vision, Chris’s game on the court will take care of itself and the Bucs will be the beneficiaries. Adding his off court discipline will make Chris’s time at Dawson a huge blessing to his life.

Receiving this award is intended to give him the motivation to keep on going in his trajectory of a life he and his family can be proud of.”

I know I can achieve my plans. I’m very, very grateful.”
