*******************************************************************************************

The Cards’ trademark lockdown defense took the legs and heart out of Davidson 69-62.

They held one of the 10 most offensively efficient and high scoring offenses in the country to well under their season averages in scoring and shooting percentages.  In fact, their D wore Davidson out to the point that the top free throwing shooting team in the land could not even make free throws in the first half (5-10) !

Even with their two key players –Gorgui Dieng and Peyton Siva– in foul trouble throughout the game,  U of L established control early and never seemed in trouble.

And when Davidson forced the Cards to win it by making free throws, they converted hitting 75% in the second half on 22 of 29 attempts.

Now, on to a match-up with #5 seed New Mexico St.
