This was apparently written prior to the release of the brackets:

Will Lose When ...Someone discovers a way to slow down the dynamic senior duo of Winters (17.7 ppg) and Johnson (15.7 ppg).
Famous Last Words
This squad has more seniors than a church bingo night and has played a rugged nonconference slate. They won't be awed and won't go down without a fight.
The Wildcats took a different tack this season, steam rolling Chattanooga to take the SoCon's auto bid after an uneven regular season that saw them finish behind upstart Georgia Southern in the league's South division. That made amends for last year's semifinal loss in the SoCon Tournament that spoiled a perfect regular-season run. Davidson runs a very efficient offense, ranking 26th in the country in points per possession, buoyed by No. 7-ranked foul shooting as a team (77.0 percent). They also are very effective on their own glass, limiting opponents to only 26.8 percent of all offensive rebounds (10th in the nation). Davidson's best player is Brendan Winters (17.1 ppg, 4.7 rpg), the son of former NBAer Brian Winters. With five seniors in the top six in minutes and wins over UMass, Saint Joseph's and Missouri, don't expect to see Davidson turn into fraidy Cats on the national stage. -- Andy Glockner
