The college basketball roundup …
DAVIDSON ó Stephen Curry scored 41 points, but committed eight turnovers in his debut as No. 20 Davidson’s starting point guard in the Wildcats’ 87-54 exhibition victory over Lenoir-Rhyne on Tuesday night.
Curry, who led the Wildcats within a missed 3-pointer of the Final Four last season, was 15-of-19 from the field, including 6-of-9 from 3-point range. The preseason All-America had five assists, but was sloppy with the ball for the Wildcats, who had 27 turnovers.
Curry moved to point guard this season, replacing Jason Richards, who led the nation in assists last season as a senior.
Andrew Lovedale added 11 points and seven rebounds for Davidson, which shot 57 percent.
Elliott McDowell had 20 points and Josh Rudder added 10 for the Division II Bears, who committed 23 turnovers.
