Davidson narrowly misses school record in demolishing UMass
Davidson (11-10, 5-4 Atlantic 10 Conference) finished 31-of-43 (72.1%) shooting. The Wildcats barely missed the program record of 72.4% the 1980-81 squad set on Jan. 10, 1981 when it went 42 of 58 against Marshall.
Following a dunk by UMass’ Preston Santos two-and-half minutes in, Davidson went on an 18-4 run for a 24-9 lead 10:30 before halftime. The lead doubled (52-22) when Brajkovic laid it in with two seconds to go before the break and Davidson maintained control the rest of the way.
Tre Mitchell scored 14 for UMass and Santos 10.
