Wildcats Fall At Davidson

Davidson, NC - Johnson & Wales (4-8) made the short drive up I-77 to take on the Davidson Wildcats (4-5) for the first time. Davidson used their superior size to wear down JWU, pulling away in the second half for a 105-63 win.

JWU battled Davidson early in the first half. The Wildcats trailed by only two, 13-11 at the 14:27 mark. Davidson kicked it into high gear at that point, ripping off a 13-0 run over the next three minutes to push their lead to thirteen. The hosts duplicated their 26-13 lead in the second ten minutes of the half, taking a 52-26 advantage into the halftime break.

The Wildcats showed some life out of the locker room, outscoring Davidson 21-12 in the first 5:21 of the second stanza, to trim the lead to 64-47. Davidson again responded with a 13-0 run that effectively put the game away. JWU's lone highlight in the final eleven minutes was an acrobatic Clarence Ellis layup and foul that he converted into a three point play.
