Davidson scouting report
So I got a decent scouting report on Davidson from talking to a handful of Southern Conference coaches and analysts yesterday for my Stephen Curry story. First off, I'm really looking forward to seeing Curry play in person because it sounds like he has every shot in the book. He's got a little flair to his game but is not cocky. He shoots 41 percent from three and makes 3.5 three-pointers a game behind the arc. He has a mid-range game, an arsenal of floating jumpers, whatever. Mr. Curry, meet Mr. Strawberry, who likely will be given the assignment to clamp down on the 6-foot-1 guard. Davidson PG Jason Richards is second in the nation in assist.
Davidson likes to push the ball and "attack the attacker." They won't shy away from Maryland. They shoot free throws very well and make almost 10 three-pointers per game. It will be interesting to see if Maryland can guard them without becoming overly aggressive and foul prone. They also rebound extremely well, but I question that a little because of the competition. They didn't beat a top 100 team all season and were blown out by Duke, of all teams.
Weaknesses: They are the second-youngest team in the country and don't have great depth. Foul trouble could prove a problem for Davidson if James Gist or someone like that goes off inside. If Maryland plays like this is Miami, they'll be in trouble. If Maryland plays like it's Carolina, they should be fine.
The score should be in the 80s.
What's the percentage chance Maryland loses? I say: 28 percent
