Davidson tops Duquesne 74-60 with Steph Curry in the house (Jan 24, 2017)
DAVIDSON, N.C. (AP) Jack Gibbs scored 32 points and Davidson held Duquesne to six made field goals in the first half en route to a 74-60 win on Tuesday night in front of a sellout crowd - including alum and two-time reigning NBA MVP Steph Curry .
Curry, Davidson's all-time leading scorer, was on hand as the student section in John M. Belk Arena was renamed ''Section30'' in his honor during a halftime ceremony.
Gibbs, the leading scorer in the Atlantic 10 Conference, hit 13 of 22 shots and grabbed seven rebounds for Davidson (10-8, 3-4 A10). Jon Axel Gudmundsson, a freshman from Iceland, added 12 points - his first return to double-digit scoring since Dec. 31 - with three 3-pointers, nine rebounds and four assists.
Emile Blackman scored 16 and Isiaha Mike 15 for the Dukes (9-12, 2-6), who cut a 39-16 halftime deficit to six points five times but couldn't get closer.
