Nickname Day – Jessica Davenport

Jessica Davenport

Oh yeah. I know, I know. Some of you out there aren’t “thrilled” with her performance, especially on defense. However, like me, she’s a newcomer to the Libs, and I think she plays good ball.

Older Joke Candidate: She’s a great ball-handler.

However, even if this weren’t the case, she deserves a nickname simply for being on the Liberty. Davenport… a university, a town in Iowa, an Investment Firm… not much to go on. However, she does spend a lot of time getting in people’s way. Ah, yes.

Jessica “The Middle-Man” Davenport

Why? Because no one wants to go through her. I would call her the Middle-Woman/Person, but it doesn’t have that ring to it. So, unfortunately, I guess I’m going to have to be sexist in this labeling.

I gotta ask this, because I think this is the second time it's happened- when you use Jess's Ohio State shots, do you purposely pick ones where Janel is defending her? 'cause that's kinda awesome.

I hadn't noticed the first time, but the second time I did. I thought that was Janel, but the posting of the original photo made it a bit unclear. To be fair, there aren't a huge amount of photos for Davenport out there, and I have to take what I can get. It's a decent photo, and I get two Libs for the price of one.
