Observations | Davidson vs. Elon

From the Observer:

• Elon coach Ernie Nestor chose to double-team Davidson forward Thomas Sander, and the Wildcats junior made the strategy backfire.
Sander passed out of the ploy effectively with five assists in the first half, and added eight rebounds.

• Davidson guard Stephen Curry is one of the best shooters in the Southern Conference when he squares up to the basket.
He had 17 points in the first half Tuesday, including three 3-pointers.

• Davidson freshman guard Bryant Barr has looked lost at times this season, but he is getting more confident.
Barr was aggressive in the first half and scored five points.

• Southern Conference contender Appalachian State must wonder how it lost to Elon, which has won three games against Division I schools and has been overwhelmed by Davidson in both games.

• Davidson guard Max Paulhus Gosselin is becoming a good shot blocker. He swatted a shot by Elon's Brett James in the first half.

• Davidson has escaped injury most of the season, but the Wildcats lost guard Will Archambault to a right ankle sprain midway through the first half. Observations Kevin Cary
