2020 Guard RJ Davis is a Silent Assassin on the Court

Class of 2020 combo guard RJ Davis from White Plains, New York, has been putting up big numbers for his AAU team, the NY Gauchos. The 5’7” Davis averages 22 points, 4.3 rebounds, 5.6 assists and 2.4 steals per game for the highly regarded program.

Throughout his career, Davis has earned numerous awards and accolades. He has been ranked in the top 100 nationally and was named the top shooter at the 2014 Nationals and a Top Performer at the 12U Nationals in Virginia. The 14-year-old has also been tabbed MVP of many NY tournaments including the Holcomb Rucker, Live City, Rod Strickland and Tristate Classic events.  



“My style of play has been described by media and peers as a ‘silent assassin,” said Davis. “I am a fairly accurate shooter, I shoot about 90% in free throws, I play solid defense and I am pretty tough for my size.”

Davis is a smart player who doesn’t shy away from size or contact while also having the ability to play and guard multiple positions. He can hit the outside jumper with regularity or even penetrate the lane and get to the rim. Basketball ability runs in his family as all seven of RJ’s uncles played on the collegiate level. Most notably, his father, Robert, was an All-American and is the All-Time leading scorer with 2,415 points at Mercy College (NY).


Davis and the Gauchos have a busy upcoming schedule with tournaments and showcases ranging from Virginia, Massachusetts, Maryland and Pennsylvania. While Davis is already a perennial top performer, he has some goals for the upcoming slate of games.

“To get stronger, quicker and build my confidence,” said Davis, who models his game after guards like Steph Curry, Melo Trimble and Marcus Paige. “I would like to raise my IQ and awareness on the court and strengthen my defense and ball handling.”

Davis currently attends Iona Prep and is undecided on where he will be attending high school next year. He hopes to play at UConn, Kentucky or Ohio State one day because of the school’s atmosphere and coaching staffs.
