Too much "Curry" for Owl's palet
Stephen Curry sank a game high 39 points as the Davidson Wildcats, currently ranked 25th nationally, defeated the Florida Atlantic Owls tonight 76-60.
FAU pulled to within 9 late in the second only to see Curry once again "take over" for the Wildcats. There was no answer defensively for his shooting prowess.
FAU was out-rebounded 49-36; mostly on the offensive glass (20 to 9). This can be attributed, in part, to the continued absense of All SBC Forward Carlos Monroe, who is expected back sometime in late December due to a continued ineligibilty issue.
Xavier "X-Man" Perkins had quite an impressive contest while finishing with 24 points and 8 rebounds. He is shaping up to be quite a force for Sun Belt opponents to defend against, having gained full control of his driving game at the small forward position. Davidson had no choice but to foul him repeatedly, as "X" went to the line 7 times on the night. He capitolized on 12 of his 14 attempts at the charity stripe.
Brett Royster had this to say when Curry drove the lane on him:
The sun rises again soon enough. FAU will take on James Madison tommorow night in the final game of thier Pre-Season NIT stint. A 2-2 overall finish would be nice.
Owls Nest prediction:
FAU by 5.
Tip of is scheduled for 5:45PM.
