COACH DAVIS TO SPEAK IN ALASKA
Misenheimer, NC -- Pfeiffer University’s head basketball coach Dave Davis will be the featured speaker at the state of Alaska's largest coaches’ clinic next week. Davis will speak on the “Pfeiffer System” which includes coaching tactics that emphasize constant pressure on both ends of the floor. Coach Davis, who just finished his 13th year as head coach at Pfeiffer, averaged 21 wins per season and directed a program that has led or has been the second leading scorer in NCAA Division I and II for seven consecutive seasons. The Falcons led the country in scoring in 2009 by averaging over 98 points per game. Davis received the invitation to speak after Pfeiffer advanced to the Elite Eight in 2004 and finished 31-3. Frank Ostanik, former head coach at Alaska-Fairbanks and director of the clinic, invited Davis to speak after hearing of the success of his program. Pfeiffer is often described as the "Fastest Team in College Basketball," and proved the system works on all levels. The Falcons scored 56 points versus Purdue in the first half of the 2006 game and scored 66 points in the second half of their game versus North Carolina in 2007.
"Frank said several people have told him Pfeiffer has one of the best systems in the country that uses a lot of small basketball players," said Davis. “It is quite an honor to be asked and I am really excited to see Alaska and even more excited to share the Pfeiffer philosophy. The dribble drive motion offense has received national attention with the success of Memphis over the last couple of years, but here at Pfeiffer we have been doing it forever."
