Davidson crushes Western Carolina
Curry, Richards Lead 'Cats to 92-59 Victory
CULLOWHEE, N.C. -- Stephen Curry and Jason Richards combined for 46 points and 11 of Davidson's 16 treys, the most by a team ever at the Ramsey Center, as the Wildcats clinched the SoCon South Division regular-season crown with a convincing 92-59 victory at Western Carolina Saturday evening. The win was the seventh straight for the Wildcats and 19th out of their last 20 as they improve to 23-4 overall and 14-1 in the league. WCU falls to 10-17 and 7-9.
A 6-1 shooting guard from Charlotte, N.C., Curry finished with a game-high 25 points and has gone for at least 23 in every game of the Wildcats' current streak. The SoCon's second leading scorer made 6-of-11 from the floor, five triples and missed just one of his nine attempts from the charity stripe. Curry has connected on 94 threes this season and broke Brendan Winters' mark of 89 with his first of the evening 1:18 into the contest.
