Davidson whips Furman: articles

From The Charlotte Observer:
DAVIDSON - Coach Bob McKillop said Davidson looked tight in its 75-57 win against Furman Thursday night.
Then one shot by freshman Stephen Curry helped loosen up the Wildcats.
Curry's twisting left-handed layup was the key shot in a 23-6 spurt that gave the Wildcats a 55-41 lead. He weaved around one defender, then had Furman forward Moussa Diagne standing under the basket.
No problem. Curry shifted hands in the air and did an underhand scoop around Diagne to tie the game at 35.
"I told him after the game, I know you scored 24 points, but that shot was the most exciting thing I've ever seen," forward Thomas Sander said.

DAVIDSON, N.C. -- Furman took its against the best team in the Southern Conference on Thursday night, and came up way short.
Davidson used a second-half onslaught to turn back Furman 75-57 in the college town where the Paladins haven't won since 1990.
On "Senior Night" in Belk Arena, freshman Stephen Curry stole the spotlight, as he has been doing for much of the season.
The Charlotte native, whose father, Dell, spent 16 seasons in the NBA, including 10 with the Charlotte Hornets, had a game-high 24 points, 17 in the second half. He broke the 20-point barrier for his ninth straight game.
