FLORENCE, S.C. – Francis Marion University sophomore left-handed pitcher Lee Tabor and senior center fielder Quentin Davis were recently named to the inaugural National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association (NCBWA) NCAA Division II All-America Team. Both were among those receiving honorable mention recognition.
Earlier, both Tabor and Davis earned All-Region and All-Peach Belt Conference honors.
Tabor, a native of Manning, compiled a 9-4 record with a 2.47 earned run average. He struck out 74 batters in 87.1 innings, while completing six of his 14 starts. Opponents batted only .222 against him in 16 appearances.
Davis, a native of Darlington, batted a team-leading .353 this past season with 44 runs scored, nine doubles, and 41 runs batted in. He also led the Patriots with six triples, four home runs, 25 stolen bases (in 31 attempts), a .433 on-base percentage, and a .529 slugging percentage.
The two helped the Patriots to a 34-16-1 record, a No. 14 national ranking, and a spot in the NCAA Division II national tournament.
Davis made his professional debut Thursday evening with the Class A Danville Braves. Playing left field, Davis went two-for-three with a home run and two RBIs as Danville defeated the Pulaski Blue Jays 6-2.
