NCAA Tournament: Davidson notebook

Associated Press
The Davidson notebook …
No player has had a tournament like Davidson’s Stephen Curry. The sophomore guard had 33 points in the 73-56 win over Wisconsin, giving him a 34.3 average for three games. Curry’s second-half total alone in the games ó 77 points ó would put him third on the overall scoring list.
Michael Flowers, Wisconsin’s senior defensive specialist who covered some pretty good guards during his Big Ten career, had the main assignment on Curry.
“I think they did a good job of running him off of double screens, sometimes even triple screens,” Flowers said. “They did a good job in the second half of making sure he had the ball, he’s coming off at least a couple screens. He doesn’t need that much time to catch the ball and release it. You know, that’s what their game plan was and they executed pretty well.”

Davidson’s invasion of Detroit continued Saturday when the North Carolina school scrounged up more buses to give students a free ride to the NCAA tournament.
The Board of Trustees at the small liberal-arts college ó located about 20 miles north of Charlotte, and 650 miles south of Detroit ó decided to pay for any student wishing to see the Wildcats.
The school announced that it had come up with five more buses to take another 250 students to Detroit for the 5:05 p.m. game today. The buses were to leave at 3 a.m. this morning on a trip estimated at 13 hours.
Davidson also provided about 20 free tickets to other students who were arranging their own transportation to Detroit.
