Steven Davis will get to wear his Wright State jersey one more time.

The WSU senior has been chosen to compete in this year’s Slam Dunk contest at the Final Four in Phoenix on Thursday, March 30. The complete list of participants has to be announced.

Davis made SportsCenter in December with a huge dunk against Urbana.


The Slam Dunk contest, along with the men’s and women’s 3-point championship, will be held at Grand Canyon University and broadcast live on ESPN.

Davis is the first Raiders player to compete in the contest. In 2014 the NCAA selected seven participants and had an online voting contest called the “Dark Horse Dunker” in which Wright State’s Jerran Young was a finalist.

Davis appeared in 68 games with 41 starts during his Wright State career, scoring 639 points and 216 rebounds.
