TCU associate athletic director Davis Babb, who has been with the school for 15 years, is leaving for Clemson, where he’ll run its athletic fundraising organization.Babb, 57, has worked as the head of development at TCU since 1999, having overseen fundraising, including an emphasis on major gifts for athletics, new facilities and capital improvements.He was an integral part of TCU raising $164 million for renovations to Amon G. Carter Stadium.“He’s been a great friend of mine personally,” TCU athletic director Chris Del Conte said. “And he’s been a tremendous asset to TCU.”Babb has been a constant in TCU athletics and worked for three athletic directors — Eric Hyman, Danny Morrison and Del Conte.Babb attended Appalachian State, where he played tennis. He came to TCU in 1998 as associate athletic director for external operations.“Davis was always the force behind the scenes making sure the I’s were dotted and the T’s were being crossed,” Del Conte said.“He’s from North Carolina. He felt it was the right time for him to go home. We’re going to miss him. He’s a great man and Clemson is getting a wonderful individual.” — Stefan StevensonCreighton star stayingDoug McDermott said he’s confident he has what it takes to be a first-round pick in the NBA Draft.He’ll wait until 2014 to find out for sure.The two-time first-team All-American said Thursday that he’ll return to Creighton for his senior year instead of declaring for June’s NBA draft.McDermott, 6-foot-8, was the second-leading scorer in Division I last season, averaging 23.2 points per game.UTA tennis fallsUT Arlington fell to Idaho 4-2 in the quarterfinals of the WAC women’s tennis tournament in Denver.Verena Scott teamed with Giada D’ortona to win a doubles match and won her singles match.Bear staying putCory Jefferson is staying at Baylor for his senior season.Jefferson, a 6-foot-9 forward who is on track to get his undergraduate degree in August, said he will stay and play his final season of eligibility.After finally becoming a starter, Jefferson led the Big 12 Conference making 61 percent of his field goals for the NIT champion Bears.
