DAVIDSON, N.C. — The Davidson women’s basketball team’s nine-game road trip continues on Wednesday, Nov. 30 with an 11 a.m. match up against the Wofford Terriers.

Wednesday’s tip off inside Jerry Richardson Indoor Stadium will be Wofford’s Education Day, and the second Education Day contest for the Wildcats this season. Complete game coverage can be found at and @DavidsonWBB on Twitter.

Series History

  • As long time Southern Conference foes, the Wildcats and Terriers have met 44 times in program history.
  • Wednesday will serve as the first meeting between Davidson and Wofford since March 2014, as the ‘Cats hold the all-time series at a 31-13 advantage.
  • Davidson has won the last five meetings against the Terriers, averaging 74.3 points per game during the win-streak.

What’s Happening
LAST TIME OUT… Despite outscoring Appalachian State in three quarters of play on Sunday afternoon, the Davidson women’s basketball team fell 84-82 to the Mountaineers in non-conference action. After trailing by just five going into the second half, the ‘Cats caught up within three points of the Mountaineers on eight different occasions, but were unable to close the gap to secure the win. With four seconds left, and down 84-81, the Wildcats drove down the court where Tomisin Adenupe scored a last-second putback with .08 ticks to go and drew the foul. But, after review, the foul was ruled on the floor and put Adenupe on the line for two shots instead of the and-one opportunity to potentially tie the game.

SUTPHIN’S SURGING… Elle Sutphin has scored in double figures in all but one of Davidson’s games this season, as the redshirt-junior is averaging 16.0 points per game, good for top-10 in the Atlantic 10. Over the last four games, Sutphin has had three 20+ point performances and is averaging 19.5 ppg during that stretch. 

DEEGAN’S DOUBLE-DOUBLES… Suzi-Rose Deegan has reflected her Rookie of the Year-type production recently, as the senior guard averages 11.3 points per game through the first seven games of the season. The Aussie native has notched three double-doubles thus far, against Duke, Austin Peay & Appalachian State. Against the Mountaineers, Deegan dropped a season-high 20 points to pair with 10 rebounds.
