#6 La Lumiere (Indiana)


La Lumiere Roster

Head Coach: Alan Huss

Raphael Davis

The 6-foot-5 wing makes La Lumiere go on the perimeter. A Purdue recruit ranked No. 90 in the ESPNU 100, Davis is averaging 22.4 points and 4.5 rebounds per game. Coach Huss mentioned Davis as the team's rock; they struggle when he's not in the lineup. When La Lumiere needs a bucket, they look for Davis. He plays well in transition and also excels in the half court game La Lumiere prefers.

The Lakers successfully beefed up their schedule in their quest to take the program to a national level. In early December, La Lumiere took on Oak Hill Academy (VA) at the Marshall County Hoopfest in Kentucky and lost, 77-59. Davis wasn't 100 percent in that game; he attempted two field goals and finished with zero points.

Huss makes no excuses for the loss: "They were better than us that day, they didn't turn the ball over."

Right before Christmas the Lakers lost to Elgin (IL), 40-34, after opening the game completely flat. La Lumiere fell behind 15-2, Elgin slowed the game down, and the Lakers never recovered. At that point, they weren't on the FAB 50 map, but that changed when they defeated top seed Findlay Prep (NV) in their next game, 67-66.

La Lumiere hasn't lost since, ending the season with 20 consecutive wins, including victories over Farragut (IL) and Detroit Country Day (MI). La Lumiere's resume looks even better when you consider Findlay Prep hasn't lost since and Elgin advanced to the Illinois Class 4A sectional championship.
