TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Before reporting to the WNBA’s Detroit Shock in just a few short weeks, Tanae Davis-Cain has two more exciting activities to participate in before heading north.
After graduating this weekend, Davis-Cain will make the short drive to Dawson, Ga. where she will be honored with a homecoming celebration in her hometown on May 9.
Davis-Cain, who starred for the Florida State women’s basketball team the past four years, made a name for herself at Terrell County Middle-High School and it is at the Lady Green Waves’ former gymnasium where the celebration will take place.
In addition to honoring Davis-Cain, the celebration will feature a barbecue cookout and live music courtesy of DJ Terrible T as well as an opportunity for those in attendance to meet with local city officials.
Also scheduled is a Lady Green Wave alumni game against the J.L. Litman women’s basketball team. Lady Green Wave coach Tammye Jenkins will serve as the head coach of the alumni squad and Davis-Cain will assist her as honorary coach.
The festivities begin at 11 a.m.
Davis-Cain is one of the best players in FSU women’s basketball history. The 5-foot-11 guard capped off her final season in Tallahassee with a fourth-straight trip to the NCAA Tournament after averaging 12.7 points per game as a senior and breaking the record for most three-pointers made in a career.
A third round choice by the Detroit Shock in the 2009 WNBA Draft, Davis-Cain will forever be remembered at FSU as a standout shooter and defender.
