No matter how big of a star her son becomes, mom will always
"I'm the same as I was at Whitmer," said Talaya Davis. "You see
me sweating now. I'm doing the same thing."
But now the stakes are a lot higher for her son, Wisconsin
Freshman Nigel Hayes. No longer a high
school megastar, Hayes learned quickly things would be different in college
"I can remember the first practice we had," recalls Hayes.
"I almost died out there from all the running that we did. The court's bigger
and wider and the guys are a little bit stronger."
Hayes realized what he needed to do. Since his Whitmer days,
he's gained 35 pounds and is now up to 250. Eventually, he caught up to the
college game as well. He's averaging 10 points a game and shooting almost 60
percent from the field.
"I'm really just looking to be more aggressive. Not
necessarily force things or force the issue. Just be more aggressive when I can
and find ways to help the team," said Hayes.
Overall, Hayes is playing so well this year, he's not only a
candidate for Big Ten Freshman of the Year, he's also a candidate for Big Ten
6th Man of the year.
For his play on the court and his attitude off it, mom
certainly has many reasons to be proud.
