GREENSBORO, N.C. – Powered by a season-high 11 three-pointers and 61 percent shooting from deep, the Wildcats cruised to an 84-54 victory over UNC Greensboro on Thursday night.

The Wildcats came out on fire in the non-conference match up, making their first five attempts from beyond the arc as they built an early 26-14 lead at the end of the first.

Elle Sutphin and Suzi-Rose Deegan led the efficient offensive attack for Davidson from the opening tip, as the duo combined for 18 of the Wildcats’ 26 points in the opening quarter.

Although UNC Greensboro was able to slow Davidson’s offense in the second and outscored the ‘Cats 15-13 in the frame, Davidson hung onto a 10-point, 39-29 lead at the break.

Out of the locker room, the Davidson offense went right back to work. Four different players had six or more points in the frame to help Davidson swell their lead to as much as 22 points. Heading into the final ten minutes, the ‘Cats were firmly in control with a 64-43 lead.

Davidson closed out the game by holding UNCG to just 11 points in the fourth, as the Wildcats earned their largest margin of victory of the season, 84-54.

The 11 made three-pointers were the most by the ‘Cats since they made 10 against Northeastern last March at the WBI.

Davidson will travel to NC State next Thursday at 8 p.m., set to take on the Pack from inside Reynolds Coliseum on the ACC Network.
