Men Win SoCon Championship; Earn NCAA Bid
CHARLESTON, S.C. — Freshman Stephen Curry dropped 29 points on College of Charleston in the 2007 Southern Conference Tournament championship game to lead top-seeded Davidson to a 72-65 victory over the Cougars Saturday evening at the North Charleston Coliseum. With the triumph, the Wildcats (29-4) have won 13 straight, 25 of their last 26, and get the league's automatic bid for the NCAA Tournament. The Cougars conclude the campaign 22-11.
Curry, the tournament's Most Valuable Player, started slowly, but drained eight of his final 14 attempts to finish 10-of-24 including four treys. The 6-1 shooting guard and SoCon Freshman of the Year ended his first conference tournament with 79 points (26.3 average) in three contests. To go along with his 18th affair scoring at least 20 points, Curry pulled down eight rebounds in 40 minutes of action.
