Who will be this year's Cinderella?
Davidson, Southern Conference
You want upset ingredients? How about a team ranked sixth in Division I in scoring, built around one of the game's best outside shooters, riding a 13-game win streak?
That would be Davidson (29-4), which also shares the ball, rebounds well for its size and shoots the three with anybody. Freshman guard Stephen Curry -- son of former NBA guard Dell Curry -- averages 21.2 points, shoots 41.1 percent from 3-point range and 84.8 percent from the line.
The Wildcats have a double-threat point guard in Jason Richards (13.6 ppg, 7.3 apg), and two solid forwards in Thomas Sander (13.5 ppg) and Boris Meno (11 ppg, 8.1 rpg). Watch the 3-point arc, where Davidson averages 9.6 bombs per game. If they’re falling, the Wildcats can beat anyone in the Midwest bracket except Florida.
