Rennia Davis was the Lady Vols’ third-leading scorer and second-leading rebounder during the 2017–18 season. That’s pretty good for a freshman, except she’s not really a freshman—in the classroom, at least.
Thanks to an accelerated learning program she signed up for at her Florida high school, Davis earned an Associate of Arts degree from Florida State College, giving her enough credit hours to be considered a junior before she even stepped onto the court as a Lady Vol. “Getting a college education is the start of doing well in life,” Davis told espnW.com, “at least in our household.”
The academic head start should give Davis the opportunity to finish her undergrad work in retail, hospitality, and tourism management and earn a master’s degree in just four years.
