Davidson/App State article

(And, of coure, where other than San Luis Obispo, CA would you get your Davidson Basketball news? It makes total sense, I know.)

Recap: Appalachian St vs. Davidson
By Sports Network

Stephen Curry set the Holmes Center scoring record with 38 points as Davidson opened Southern Conference play with a 71-60 victory over the Appalachian State Mountaineers.

Curry was active from the field for the Wildcats (3-2, 1-0 SoCon), hitting 14- of-27, including 9-of-16 from behind the three-point line. Thomas Sander and Boris Meno added 13 and 10 points, respectively, and Jason Richards ended with a game-high seven assists for the victors.

Ryann Abraham led the Mountaineers (3-3, 0-1) with 19 points and four assists, while Kellen Brand netted 12 points in the loss.

Curry drilled 10-of-14 shots from the field in the first half, scoring 26 points to pace the Wildcats to a 42-28 lead at the break.

Despite hitting 54.5 percent from the field in the second half, the Mountaineers could not overcome the halftime deficit, losing by 11.

Davidson only went to the free-throw line twice in the game, but its 12 three- pointers more than made up for the lost opportunity at the charity stripe.
