College of Charleston guard Dontaye Draper just didn't have one more heroic performance left in him.
Less than 24 hours after scoring a career-high 38 points in an overtime victory over Appalachian State, Draper didn't have the energy to mount another Herculean effort in Saturday night's Southern Conference championship matchup with Davidson.
Tournament MVP Stephen Curry poured in 29 points and Boris Meno added 14 points and 10 rebounds to lead Davidson past the College of Charleston, 72-65, in front of a crowd of 8,009 at the North Charleston Coliseum.
Davidson (29-4) earned its second straight SoCon Tournament title and earned the league's automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament. The College of Charleston, which still has an outside shot at an NIT bid, is 22-11 in Bobby Cremins' first season as head coach.
