Summary:
Davion Mitchell is a very athletic, pass-first point guard that is having a very good junior season for Baylor.  He played very well in his team’s win over Illinois, as he scored 15 points, made 4 threes, and he also had 7 assists, 4 rebounds, and 2 steals to lead his team to the victory. 

Though he didn’t really shoot the ball very well in his first two seasons, he’s off to a terrific start this year. His strong play this season has drawn attention from NBA teams and scouts, and he is currently a second round prospect for the 2021 draft.
