Anthony Davis has been studying the shot-blocking skills of Serge Ibaka, who leads the NBA in blocks per game (3.3) and block percentage (8.8).

“I started to watch Serge Ibaka from the Thunder,” Davis said. “He’s a great shot-blocker, and I just try to see what he (does) to block shots in the NBA. It’s very hard to guys block shots in the NBA because guys are so talented, and I think he does a great job of doing so.”

Davis leads all NCAA players in blocks per game at 4.5; his 13.8 block percentage is second among players averaging at least 20 minutes.
