(statistics before NCAA Tournament)

OUTLOOK: What rebuilding year?  Despite losing four starters and
five of its top six scorers from last season's NCAA tourney
team, Davidson made a surprising run to the Southern Conference
title.  The Wildcats finished the season on a rampage, winning
their last 13 games and 25 of their last 26.  Curry, son of
former NBA star Dell Curry, was the second-leading freshman
scorer in the nation - behind only Texas phenom Kevin Durant. He
is one of four players in double figures for Davidson, which
averages a lofty 81.7 points per game.  The Wildcats acquitted
themselves well in an eight-point defeat to Ohio State in the
NCAAs last season and could spring an upset with a favorable
matchup this time around.

NEXT GAME: Thursday vs. (4) Maryland at Buffalo, New York
