Bloomfield College Basketball Player Reaches 1,000 Career Points, Earns All-District Honor

Nick Davidson

By Alicia Cook

Student-athlete Nick Davidson has reached his 1,000 career points mark in his junior season (2016-17) at Bloomfield College.

The forward notched his 1,000th point December 16, 2016 on the road against Southern New Hampshire University.

“In high school, I was 85 points away from 1,000 when I graduated,” recalled Davidson, who was named MVP his senior year at Rancocas Valley High School. “I came to Bloomfield wanting to score 1,000. It’s not all about points, but now I will be remembered at Bloomfield College and it shows me how far I’ve come. I wasn’t always the basketball player I am today. I am really blessed.”

Davidson ’18 was also named to the All-Metropolitan Writers Association (first team) and the National Association of Basketball Coaches' (NABC) 2017 Division II All-District East Second Team.

Davidson led Bloomfield in scoring, averaging 16.7 a game and eclipsed 1,000 career points after posting 534 (points) during the Bears 32 contests this season. Davidson ranked in the top 50 players in the nation in Division II with his 183 free throw attempts (43rd) and 144 free throws made (36th). He was named to the Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference (CACC) All-Conference First Team and All-Tournament Team this year and was voted to the second-team All-East Region by the Division II Conference Commissioners Association (CCA).
"Nick is a special player and works hard day in and day out," coach Gerald Holmes, whose team won the Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference (CACC) for the seventh time of his fifteen-year tenure at the College. "We had a good year and he was an integral part of that; I'm glad to see him getting recognized for his outstanding play this season."

Noting that 1,000 points cannot be accomplished alone, the team captain is quick to credit his teammates and coaches.

“I trust my teammates, they trust me. I matured the most on the court this year,” said Davidson, the two-time leading scorer. “We won a conference chip this year. On and off the court we are a unit. That’s what has made us stronger.”

Davidson also praises his mother and grandmother, who make it to every single one of his games, with his grandmother even trekking to Colorado to watch him play.

“My mother and grandmother are huge support tools in my career,” said Davidson. “I don’t have good games every game, and they help me stay level. They remind me the highs are never as high, and the lows are never as low as they seem.”

Davidson, who studies communications, chose Bloomfield College for its athletic and academic programs. With one season of Bloomfield College basketball left for Davidson, he has his sights set on hitting goals as a team.

“Now that I’ve gotten my 1,000, I am more team-oriented,” said Davidson, who has been playing basketball since he was a child. “I have a lot of big goals for myself and team. I would like to go undefeated in our conference and win the conference, making us back-to-back champs. I want to make it to the Elite 8 or win the national championship, since Bloomfield has never won a national championship…yet.”

As he continues to reach personal and team milestones, Davidson is proud to be representing all South Jersey basketball players.

“It means so much to me to know others are seeing what I’ve accomplished.  This makes me appreciate the game so much more,” said Davidson. “North Jersey players have coverage their entire career, South Jersey can be forgotten and there is so much talent down there.”

After graduation, Davidson hopes to play professional basketball overseas.
