NCAA Tournament: Davidson departs after 69-62 loss to Louisville
NCAA Tournament » Cards’ defense too much for Wildcats

< Previous Page

The Cardinals were ranked as high as No. 4 earlier this season, but a spate of injuries and a stretch with five losses in seven games dropped them out of the rankings. They came into the Big East tournament with losses in three of their four final games.

But they rolled through the conference tourney with four wins in four days, beating Seton Hall, Marquette, Notre Dame and, finally, Cincinnati in the championship game to take some momentum going into the NCAA tournament.

Davidson got a tournament berth this year with a dramatic, double-overtime victory over Western Carolina last Friday in the championship game of the Southern Conference tournament. The Wildcats led by 12 with 2 minutes left in regulation but needed two overtimes to put it away.
