Davidson uncommonly good

DAVIDSON -- Stephen Curry's afternoon?

Definitely uncommon.

His two-series run that depleted UNCG's energy on the road?

His coach called it "magical."

Curry, son of former Charlotte Hornets guard Del Curry, scored 29 points, stepping back and brashly hitting 3-pointers from all around, and Davidson parlayed 22 turnovers into 22 transition points in a 75-65 victory against UNCG on Saturday at Belk Arena.
With Kyle Hines straining to stay involved on offense, Curry pushed Davidson's lead to double digits single-handedly.

Davidson led 60-51 on Curry's 3-pointer from the right wing. Seconds later, Curry stripped Ricky Hickman of the ball, darted to a spot on the left wing and launched another 3. He was already escaping upcourt, wearing a smile for the end-zone student section and tongue flapping, as it fell through the net, giving Davidson a 63-51 lead.

"To have a performance like he did, for 39 minutes, is extraordinary," Wildcats coach Bob McKillop said. "Within the confines of that performance, there was one of the most magical sequences I've seen as a coach in a long period of team. Having the energy to do that, that was as magical and electric and you can get in college basketball."
