 It's not every day that someone shows up with a gift of a $20,000 academic scholarship, but that's what happened on Thursday at Garfield High, where Foot Locker and DoSomething.org presented Josh Davis with the academic scholarship handed to him by USC's Marqise Lee. Davis, a Bulldog standout in football, is also a top student in the classroom.   Eric.sondheimer@latimes.com

State Sen. Wendy Davis of Texas, who became an overnight celebrity with her one-woman stand against tougher abortion restrictions, announced Wednesday she will reveal her next political step in two weeks, amid strong signals she will launch an uphill bid for governor. In an email to supporters, Davis said: “There's one question I've gotten quite often in the past few months. I've heard it online, while I'm traveling around the state, from the media and in my Fort Worth neighborhood: What's next?

 Junior Dominic Davis of Mission Hills Alemany is following the legacy established by former Sherman Oaks Notre Dame sprinter Khalfani Muhammad by showing there's still lots of speed from Mission League athletes. On Saturday, Davis ran the 100 meters in 10.47 seconds to win the invitational race at the Mt. San Antonio College High School Invitational. Like Muhammad, who won the state championship in the 100 and 200, Davis is also a running back in football. Loyola's 400-meter relay team won its race in 41.58.

I read the story about Jack Davis ("A Political Bad Boy's Lament," June 25) with great interest. As a San Francisco resident of 12 years, I have been confounded and confused by Davis' ability to jump sides at a whim (or should I say at the chase of a dollar?). However, Davis is not the problem, he's only part of the problem. The problem is the American political system that allows such people to exist with such influence. Something is seriously wrong when the outcome of a campaign is based not on substance, but on who is either running the campaign or who raised the most money.

I just saw the charismatic Sammy Davis Jr. in "Moon Over Parador," in which he topped himself again with the definitive creative/sensuous interpretation of "Begin the Beguine." Will someone please persuade the most erotic man God put on Earth to play a romantic lead in a movie? I want to see him get the girl. I don't think he's gotten the girl since "Porgy and Bess," and everyone got the girl in "Porgy and Bess." KRISTEN NORTH Las Vegas

HOUSTON - In a chaotic late-night scene that played out beneath the Capitol dome in Austin, a Texas lawmaker with pink sneakers and the steely resolve of a branding iron single-handedly stopped an effort to drastically curtail abortion in the Lone Star State. Wendy Davis' filibustered victory, which ricocheted around the world via social media, may prove short-lived. Gov. Rick Perry announced Wednesday he would reconvene the Legislature on Monday in a second and likely successful attempt to pass the measure.

Not unusually, Shani Davis spent most of Wednesday alone in his room, except for a morning jog. He studied his journals and race plan. Again he endeavored to do what no one had. Again he internalized any pressures and doubts, trusting only himself to escape them. Later, gliding along the Richmond Olympic Oval in the minutes before the 1,000-meter race that could redefine his grip on history, he was once more effectively alone, as the Chicago native likes it and unapologetically means it to be. Hands on hips, Davis snapped off a yawn.

USC tailback Justin Davis averaged nearly seven yards per carry and scored six touchdowns in seven games as a freshman in 2013. His season ended when he suffered an ankle injury against Notre Dame that required surgery. Davis has been sidelined during spring practice while recovering, but he said he was progressing. "I want to get the playbook down so when I come back I'll already know it and can jump right back in," he said. Davis is looking forward to training camp in August and reestablishing himself.

Dodgers 3, Tigers 2 (10 innings) KEY MOMENT: Carl Crawford's 10th-inning double skipped by Detroit left fielder Rajai Davis, allowing Chone Figgins to score the winning run from first base. Figgins opened the inning by drawing a walk. Detroit sent the game into extra innings when the Dodgers chose not to walk Victor Martinez with first base open and the tying run on second base in the ninth and the Tigers first baseman burned them with a two-out run-scoring single against Kenley Jansen.

The Clippers took Monday off, preferring to rest their bodies rather than practice. But not Glen "Big Baby" Davis , who appeared at the team's training facility to get in some extra conditioning and to practice his shooting. "There's no off day," a smiling Davis said after Sunday's game against the Lakers. Davis knows he needs to improve his conditioning so he can keep up with the fast-paced Clippers. He also needs to shed some weight from his 315-pound frame so he can earn the extra minutes he wants from Clippers Coach Doc Rivers.

When the media was let in after the Clippers' shoot-around on Monday, Glen “Big Baby” Davis was on the court running wind sprints. When his teammates started leaving, Davis stayed and continued shooting after the practice. It was clear that Davis was getting in some extra work and it also was clear that the run-in the big power forward had with Clippers Coach Doc Rivers on Saturday night in Houston was over. Rivers said the two had talked, that the issue was resolved and that Davis was expected to play Monday night against the Minnesota Timberwolves.

MINNEAPOLIS - Sunday was a day of rest and no practice for the Clippers, giving Glen Davis time to reflect on his run-in with Coach Doc Rivers and allowing Blake Griffin time to get more treatment for back spasms. The drama-filled moments from Saturday night's game between the Clippers and Houston Rockets also included reserve guard Jamal Crawford suffering from a sore and tight left Achilles' tendon. Davis had gotten into an argument with Rivers during the game Saturday night and was eventually escorted off the bench and into the Clippers' locker room after Rivers told the team's security to remove his backup power forward.

Shani Davis has a glow about him these Winter Games, and this is no exaggeration. Not after a Tokyo television crew blasted him with an industrial-strength spotlight during an interview, a flash that looked like a signal flare set off behind the backstage curtain. Then Davis rounded the corner, the shine remaining. With a wide and easy smile, the world's premier long-track speedskater gleefully bragged on a souvenir poster featuring the Pokemon character Pikachu. He freely labeled this Olympics experience as a "day and night" change for the better compared to 2006 in Turin, Italy.

Clippers Coach Doc Rivers grew so upset at Glen Davis that he had the backup forward removed from Saturday's game at Houston. Rivers sent Davis to the locker room early in the second quarter after the two exchanged words. After Rivers had pulled Davis early in the second quarter, Davis yelled something at Rivers, who in turn yelled, “Sit your big … down.” A few seconds later associate head coach Alvin Gentry went to talk to Davis, but Rivers then told the team's security personnel to escort Davis to the locker room.

HOUSTON  - Losing All-Star power forward Blake Griffin with back spasms had already put the Clippers in a tough predicament, but it got more difficult when Coach Doc Rivers grew so upset at Glen Davis that he had the backup forward escorted from the game. The Clippers just pressed on, walloping the Houston Rockets yet again, 118-107, Saturday at Toyota Center, to sweep their four-game season series. Even with Griffin and Davis back in the locker room, the Clippers effort in the face of adversity.
