SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS -- Drake basketball coach Keno Davis has been named the 2007-08 Chevrolet Division I College Basketball Coach of the Year in voting determined by the CBS Sports talent and production staff.

Davis was presented the award by Chevrolet General Manager Ed Peper in between the semifinal round games of Saturday's NCAA Final Four in the Alamodome.

The Chevrolet basketball coach of the year honor is the sixth national award for Davis,  who has been honored by CollegeHoops.net, Basketball Times, The Sporting News, the U. S. Basketball Writers Association, and also received the Hugh Durham Award.

Davis, who capped his first season as a head coach by leading Drake to a school-record 28-5 mark and its first NCAA Tournament appearance since 1971, was selected The Associated Press college basketball coach of the year Friday.

He also is a finalist for the Naismith National Coach of the Year and the Jim Phelan National Coach of the Year.
