DAVIDSON, N.C. – After letting a double-digit first-half lead slip away, Davidson surged past Fordham 73-58 in Belk Arena Wednesday afternoon.

The Wildcats took control with a 21-2 run, which included 16 unanswered points, as Fordham hit one of 10 shots in the stretch.

Kellan Grady led Davidson (9-5, 5-2 A-10) with 24 points and matched his career-high with seven 3-pointers, with three of those treys coming during the decisive second-half run. The only Wildcat to score in double figures, Grady also pulled down seven boards.

Luka Brajkovic scored nine points and grabbed nine rebounds, while Carter Collins and Hyunjung Lee scored eight points apiece.

After finding itself in an early 14-11 hole, Davidson used a 19-3 streak, highlighted by breakaway dunks from Nelson Boachie-Yiadom and Grant Huffman, to build a 13-point lead in the first 20 minutes. 

In addition to the Wildcats shooting 58 percent in the opening period and leading 38-29 at the break, Grady scored 14 points in the half, including four 3-pointers.

Grady also hit seven threes in his college debut on Nov. 10, 2017, when the Wildcats set the A-10 record with 26 made threes in a 110-62 win over Charleston Southern.

Fordham (1-6, 1-6 A-10) was led by Chris Austin’s 19 points.
