Baylor power duo Khadijiah Cave and Nina Davis have signed a training camp deal with the Los Angeles Sparks. Cave and Davis will be with the defending champions this Sunday at the beginning of the preseason camp.
Cave became the 33rd player in program history to surpass the 1,000-point mark and received her first Big 12 Player of the Week honor this past season.
“It’s a great opportunity, I’m thankful I received a call from them,” Cave said in a statement. “It’s all about timing and I’m happy to have this chance. I’m going to take it and do my best and hopefully I make the team.”
Davis, a four-time WBCA All-American, ended her career as one of the top five Lady Bears in career field goal percentage (second, 57.2), starts (second, 144), free throw attempts (second, 799), free throws made (third, 522), rebounds (fourth, 1,074), field goals made (fourth, 939) and scoring (fifth, 2,433).
She is also the only four-year Big 12 Championship team honoree in conference history and received her third NCAA regional all-tournament team nod at the end of this past season.
“I’m thrilled,” Davis said in a statement. “It’s a blessing and a wonderful opportunity to be able to go to LA. They’re not just any team, they’re the champs, so I’m excited to get there and see what happens.”
Cave and Davis join another former Lady Bear in the Sparks organization — Odyssey Sims.
“Odyssey has told me to go and be myself,” Davis said. “Have confidence in my game and do the things I’m capable of. I’m definitely excited to meet back up with her. My freshman year, playing with her they used to call us Batman and Robin. It was fun out there being able to feed off of her, so I’m excited to get to LA and be able to play with her again.”
