Fresh off their first semester exams, The Citadel's freshmen basketball players now face the sternest test that Southern Conference basketball has to offer — a road game at two-time defending champion Davidson.
And the Bulldogs will likely be without their lone senior, forward Demetrius Nelson.
Nelson, at 6-8 and 250 pounds the Bulldogs' only real inside presence, has been hampered by a foot injury in recent weeks and was limited to just 12 minutes in The Citadel's 87-74 loss at Chattanooga on Dec. 1.
