    Tom Davis

    How good do you think Tom Davis feels right now?

    His son and former asst Keno won a huge game. The Drake program that he laid the foundation for is ranked.

    His former asst. in Bruce Pearl just knocked off the top team in the country and is going to be #1 next week.

    They are both using a lot of things they were tought by Coach Davis.

    Didnt one of his asst coaches win a NCAA title a few years ago?

    Coach Tom Davis didnt win any NCAA titles but his coaching style has an impact and touch on the game today.

    Re: Tom Davis

    Love Dr. Tom. Classy guy and a pretty good coach. Not great (mostly on the recruiting front), but good.

    Odd coincidence that Davis and Fry, both guys that were at Iowa for a long time - have some rather special coaches that worked for them at one time or another.

    Bruce Pearl mentioned being Dr. Tom's assistant in his post game interview.

    Re: Tom Davis

    Maryland's coach was a Davis assistant. I think they won the title a few years back.

    Re: Tom Davis

    This has got to be one of the highest points in his life right now with all his success and to see those he taught do so well.

    Re: Tom Davis

    Good thing Iowa cut its ties with Dr Tom the way they did.

    The Alford thing was a great decision. Losing out on Keno and Dr Tom and any other assistant under him was not such a good idea.

    Re: Tom Davis

    Sometimes, I wonder what might have happened if he got some better draws, i.e. not running into the eventual national champion every year in the 2nd round (sometimes later, I guess).

    Re: Tom Davis

    I hoped when Keano got the job that he would learn from his fathers mistakes. He has.
    He coaches his own brand of Tom Davis ball much like Pearl has and it's fun to watch.
    My hat's off to Keano Davis and the Drake team, they make this state proud!!
