Analysis
Root Reserve on Davidson I love the teams that have a multiple of good shooters that know that there’s no one dependent to hold up the team on these road games. When one shooter is struggling, there’s three others to pick up the scoring. Davidson has won each of its last 12 games and the Wildcats are excellent shooters. Davidson has the ninth best field goal accuracy in college basketball at 49.9% and is second-best in 3-point shooting accuracy at 41.5%. Hyunjung Lee is the leading scorer for Davidson with an average of 17.4 points per game and is shooting 50.8% overall and 42.4% from behind the three-point line. Second-leading scorer Foster Loyer is averaging 15.9 points per game and shoots 47.0% overall and 50.0% from long distance. Four of Davidson's top five scorers are shooting 50.4% or higher. Davidson is very careful with the ball, as the Wildcats are turning it over an average of just 9.5 times per outing. Davidson holds its opponents to an average of 65.7 points per game and 42.0% shooting. The Wildcats are allowing an average of only 29.1 rebounds, including just 6.9 offensive rebounds per game which is 42nd in the nation. Therefore the Wildcats do not allow opponents to have many second-look opportunities. Richmond is being outrebounded by 3.1 rebounds per contest. Davidson has covered the spread in 11 of its 14 games that have had betting lines while Richmond has failed to cover the spread in 9 of its 14.
