College Basketball: Davidson 83, Furman 43

Associated Press
DAVIDSON ó With a player like Stephen Curry, Davidson has earned a reputation for being able to put points on the scoreboard.
But it was the Wildcats’ defense that stood front and center in Davidson’s 83-43 win over Furman on Wednesday night.
The Wildcats (15-3, 8-0 Southern Conference) forced the Paladins into 22 turnovers.
And with Curry scoring 30 points and Will Archambault adding 13, Davidson pulled ahead by as many as 49 points late in the second half in recording its 38th consecutive, regular-season league victory.
“It’s a goal of ours to go out and make it difficult on the other offense,” said Curry, the nation’s leading scorer at 29.1 points per game, who also had five assists and five steals on Wednesday. “We don’t want to give them many easy or open looks.
“We want to pressure the ball as much as possible, and not have any letdowns. Tonight was probably the first time we made that happen.”
The Wildcats put up their best defensive effort in the second half. Already ahead by 21 points, they limited Furman (2-14, 0-7) to just one field goal over 17 minutes.
