LOCAL ROUNDUP: Davis receives academic honor


CHAMPAIGN — Former Danville High School standout Eriel Davis was one of 52 University of Illinois athletes in winter sports named to the Academic All-Big Ten Team.

Davis, a sophomore majoring in Recreation, Sport and Tourism, was one of three players on the women’s basketball team to get the honor, which awards student athletes who get a 3.7 GPA or higher for the current athletic year.

Davis and the Illini will be in action tonight in the third round of the Women’s National Invitation Tournament against Toledo at 6 p.m.
