DAVIDSON, N.C. – Six players scored in double figures as the Davidson Wildcats rolled by Central Penn 88-54 Saturday afternoon at Belk Arena.

Freshman forward Luka Brajkovic turned in his third career double-double, and second straight, with 14 points and 11 rebounds to lead the way against the Knights, who play in the United States Collegiate Athletic Association (USCAA).

“Every game is an experience we can learn from,” said Bob McKillop. “Yes, we won by 34 points, but there are many nuggets of knowledge we can take from this game that will prove valuable as we go through this season.”

Wildcats’ Bates Jones, David Czerapowicz and Luke Frampton scored 12 points each. Jon Axel Gudmundsson also reached double digits with 10 points to go along with 5 boards, 4 assists and 3 steals.

Junior Cal Freundlich hit this shot in the game vs. the Knights.

Davidson, which led by as many as 41, shot 50 percent and finished with a commanding 51-27 margin on the glass.

The Wildcats turned in another solid defensive effort, holding the Knights to just 33.9 percent from the floor.

After a slow start, Davidson closed the first half on a 32-7 streak to take a 47-21 advantage into the break.

Joel Zola led the way for Central Penn (4-8) with 12 points and 10 rebounds.

Davidson will enjoy a week break for the Christmas Holiday before returning to the court next Saturday for a noon tip at No. 9/10 North Carolina.

 

Santa was at the game to cheer on the Wildcats and toss out t-shirts to the crowd.
