In the Trinity game on Friday night she scored seven points and added five rebounds, two assists and two steals. The following afternoon against No. 3 Amherst, Davenport had nine points, four rebounds, a block and three steals.

The 5-foot-11 Davenport has been a welcome addition to the team in seven games for the Bobcats, since transferring to Bates from UMaine-Orono in December.
