The Hawks came out in the second half with a focus on stopping the three ball, which allowed them to not only climb all the way back, but secure the win as well. Saint Joseph's was the better all around team out there today, leading Davidson in rebounds, assists, steals, and blocks. However, the 11 turnovers kept the Wildcats in the game.
Lately, it seems like Bembry was a one man offense in some situations, but he had plenty of help today. Aaron Brown had 20 points, which was a career high for him, on 7-13 shooting, going 3-5 from three point territory as well. Isaiah Miles went 4-11 from the field, but all four field goals came from three point territory, as he finished with 13 points. James Demery had a solid 10 point outing himself, with most of those points coming on fast break opportunities.
Davidson lives or dies from the three point shot, but that was really the only thing that kept them alive today. They only managed to hit 11 field goals from inside the three point line all game. They were a spectacular three point shooting team, but struggled to get anything going when the Hawks applied pressure in the second half.
The win puts the Hawks at 9-11 on the season, 3-5 in conference play. This is a young squad with a lot of inexperience, but it's good to see some flashes of what these guys are capable of in games like this. The next couple of seasons should be fun for Hawks fans.
