Heidelberg University seniors Nate Davis (Dayton/Stivers) and Dane Givner (Pittsburgh PA./Harvest Prep) have scored 2012-13 All-Ohio Athletic Conference honors for the men’s basketball team.
Davis was voted first team All-OAC, while Givner earned All-OAC honorable mention.
Davis’s first team selection marks the first of his career as a basketball player. As a sophomore, Nate tabbed an All-OAC honorable mention selection, which was followed by another honorable mention as a junior.
During the 2012-13 season, Davis shattered the Heidelberg all-time blocked shots record and eclipsed 1,000 career points. For the season, Davis collected 14 double-doubles making his career total 21.
Davis scored his season-high thirty points twice. His first thirty-point performance came early in the season at Alma College, while the second came on February 9, against the Fighting Muskies of Muskingum University. He finished with 1,102 career points, good for 18th on Hiedelberg’s all-time scorers list.
However, Davis’s athletic career at Heidelberg is not over yet, as he will be competing with the Heidelberg University men’s track and field team as a jumper this spring. Davis is a two-time All-American in the high jump.
For Givner, the honorable mention selection will be added to his impressive resume as a Student Prince. As a freshman, Givner tabbed honorable mention All-OAC on his way to earning Freshman of the Year honors. He also earned a spot on the DIII News All-Freshman team in his first year in the tri-color.
As a sophomore, Givner collected a second team All-OAC selection, followed by another honorable mention a year ago.
His season high came at home against Muskingum University, when he dropped 28 points, while shooting 50% from beyond the arch and over 86% from the field.
For the season, Dane collected three double-doubles on his way to 1,400 career points. Givner’s 1,400 points earns him eighth among Heidelberg’s all-time leading scorers. Dane also earned 144 career steals, tying the all-time Heidelberg record held by 2001 graduate, Jon Otterbacher.
