NCAA Notebook: Davidson Doesn't Fear Georgetown

Stephen Curry was asked which of Davidson's opponents played the most physical defense.

"I'd say UCLA," Curry said.

There weren't many cupcakes on Davidson's non-Southern Conference schedule, which featured No. 1 seeds North Carolina and UCLA and No. 2 seed Duke.

The Wildcats (27-6) didn't beat any of them, losing by an average of seven points. But coach Bob McKillop's team gained a measure of confidence simply by hanging tough. Now, he hopes it pays off today against 7-foot-2 Roy Hibbert and Georgetown in Raleigh, N.C.

"I'd be foolish not to allude to the fact that our guys have played against [UCLA's] Kevin Love and [North Carolina's] Tyler Hansbrough. ... not that we did anything extraordinary against them, but we hung in there," McKillop said. "We came out on a losing end, but we learned some valuable lessons."
