The Wildcats (15-11, 11-1 Southern) won their eighth in a row and remain one game ahead of Chattanooga in the Southern Conference as the teams prepare to face off on Thursday.
Jelani Hewitt led Georgia Southern (11-16, 4-8) with 32 points.
Davidson scored the final seven points of the first half to stretch a 6-point lead to 13, 45-32, at the intermission.
Georgia Southern opened the second half with a 12-4 run to cut the lead to five, but back-to-back 3-pointers by Sullivan and Jack Gibbs helped push the Davidson lead back out to 10. An 11-0 run later in half provided a cushion as the Wildcats cruised to the win.
