Gibbs guard Daniel Davis has transferred to Tarpon Springs, Gladiators boys basketball coach Larry Murphy said.

Davis, a senior, battled through injuries last season to average 11.3 points and 4.7 assists per game. Davis' younger brother, Donald, a 6-foot-3 junior who played JV last season, will also be playing for the Spongers.

"The (Davis) family moved up in that area," Murphy said. "It's definitely going to hurt us, and it will help (Tarpon Springs) quite a bit."

The addition of the Davis brothers bolsters an already solid Spongers team that includes returning starters Trai Halton, Scottie James and Mitchell Wilcox. Last year, Tarpon Springs won a playoff game for the first time since 1947 and should make an even deeper run through the postseason.
