The Charleston Cougars and Davidson Wildcats meet Saturday afternoon at the John M. Belk Arena.
The Charleston Cougars look for their second road win to keep their undefeated record intact. The Charleston Cougars are averaging 73 points on 42.9 percent shooting and allowing 56 points on 34.3 percent shooting. Canyon Barry is averaging 26.5 points and 2.5 rebounds while Cameron Johnson is averaging 14.5 points and 2.5 assists. Marquise Pointer is dishing three assists and Jarrell Brantley is grabbing 7.5 rebounds. The Charleston Cougars are shooting 40.4 percent from beyond the arc, as they’ve made 19 threes in two games. The Cougars are also holding teams to just 17.9 percent shooting from deep, a formula that will result in a lot of winning this year. Charleston has lost eight of its last 10 road games.
The Davidson Wildcats play just their second game and first in a week. The Davidson Wildcats are averaging 90 points on 40 percent shooting and allowing 85 points on 42.6 percent shooting. Jack Gibbs is averaging 35 points and five assists while Jordan Barham is averaging 15 points and three rebounds. Jake Belford is grabbing 12 rebounds and Brian Sullivan is dishing five assists. The Davidson Wildcats shot just 24.3 percent from deep in their opener, and we know they’re capable of shooting far better. Davidson also turned the ball over just six times, proving this is a well coached and disciplined Wildcats squad. Davidson has won six straight games on its home court.
The Cougars are 1-7 ATS in their last 8 road games and 21-49-1 ATS in their last 71 games overall. The Wildcats are 7-2 ATS in their last 9 non-conference games and 36-16 ATS in their last 52 games overall. The road team is 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings.
Davidson has had a ton of rest, is tough to compete with at home and is simply the better squad at both ends of the court. I look for the Wildcats to get hot from deep and win rather easily.
