Charlotte Observer: Kevin Cary

Observations Kevin Cary
• Davidson junior forward Boris Meno scored 20 points, but he must wonder about the shots that got away. Meno made his first nine shots and would have set a school record with 10 straight field goals if he hadn't missed an uncontested layup. He missed another uncontested layup and finished 9-of-11.

• UNC Greensboro's Ricky Hickman is the kind of streaky player who can frustrate a coach. Hickman averaged 23 points last week and was named Southern Conference player of the week, but went scoreless on three shots Saturday and committed five turnovers.

• Davidson guard Max Paulhus Gosselin plays with abandon on the court, but that fire can be a detriment on offense. He can rush drives to the basket, and often misses layups.

• Davidson point guard Jason Richards will be sore today. He crashed to the floor after a layup in the second half and hobbled with a sore left foot.

• UNC Greensboro freshman Kendall Toney, a former Gaston Day standout, had a forgettable return in front of local fans. He shot 1-of-6, and missed all four 3-point attempts.

• The Belk Arena crowd has swelled this season. Attendance is up 25 percent from last season to almost 3,800 a game.
