Wildcats move to 3-0 in SoCon play

Davidson backcourt buries Chattanooga

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. - A trio of Davidson guards helped the Wildcats remain unbeaten in the Southern Conference with a 92-80 win against Chattanooga on Monday night.

Mocs fall to Curry’s 30

The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga forgot the lessons learned Saturday in a win over Oral Roberts faster than Stephen Curry could nail a 3-pointer.

The phenomenal freshman guided Davidson to a 92-80 Southern Conference basketball victory over the Mocs before a Monday night crowd of 2,930 in McKenzie Arena.

"I’ve been coming to this arena for a long time, and traditionally the games we play are hard-fought, exciting games, up and down with runs, and this was a classic example of that experience," Davidson coach Bob McKillop said. "We answered every great play by Chattanooga. Somebody on our team stepped up to answer, particularly in our backcourt.

"Every time they were hitting us with a dagger, we responded."

Most of the Wildcats’ stinging blows came from Curry’s fingertips. He scored 30 points on 11-of-21 shooting and had 11 rebounds and six assists for Davidson (9-3, 3-0). Curry, a freshman, scored 18 points in the second half and hit six 3-pointers......
