LaDavius Draine signs with Southern Miss men's basketball

April 12, 2017

HATTIESBURG, Miss. -- Head coach Doc Sadler and the Southern Miss men's basketball program have announced the signing of guard LaDavius Draine (Calhoun City, Miss.) for the 2017-18 season.

"We're very excited about the addition of LaDavius, not only basketball-wise but for his character," Sadler said. "He's the type of player we want in our program. One of the advantages he has is playing in a program with a coach that demands and gets positive results from his players both on and off the court."

Draine, standing at 6-foot-4 and 185 pounds, had a highly-decorated career on and off the court while at Calhoun City High School. He was a three-time District 4-2A MVP and averaged 30.2 points and 11.2 rebounds per game as a senior. Draine ultimately scored 2,318 points in his time as a Wildcat and recorded eight points and six rebounds in the Mississippi/Alabama All-Star Game in March. His biggest game was posting a school-record 52 points as a senior, including 46 in the first half.

Draine boasted just as many off-the-court superlatives as well. The four-year honor roll student and BETA Club member was also voted Class Clown, Mr. CCHS, Most Talented and Most Likely to be Remembered in the Who's Who elections.
