Tonawanda News — Miranto struggled to hold back tears after the game when he spoke about Davis' play Saturday night. He's been there with Davis through his injury rehab, and he knows how much work the junior has put in to become a contributing member of the team who could make big time plays.
"That was a huge basket, a huge play," Miranto said. "He's a character guy and he's been waiting his turn. I'm getting emotional talking about it. He's been waiting his turn to make a big play for us and he made it today for sure."
Davis deflected all praise following the game, saying he was just happy to be able to help his team win. He was more concerned about talking about the team and its accomplishment.
"Today showed the resilience of our team. We don't rely on just one guy," Davis said. "It's a whole team effort. We rely on all five guys and on the bench for energy. Our team as a whole, there is no weak link, and I think that's what makes us so special."
