Davidson: As Good As a Bowl of "Curry"

Brian KaufmanCorrespondent IMarch 18, 2008

Davidson will be the Cinderella of this year's NCAA Tournament.

Led by Second Team All-American Stephen Curry and his 25.1 ppg, the Wildcats drew No. 7 seed, Gonzaga, in the first round. The Zags will struggle to contain Curry, and I believe Curry will lead Davidson to the win.

The second round is where it gets intriguing. Barring a retriever-sized upset, Davidson would then be pitted against the Georgetown Hoyas in the round of 32.

Roy Hibbert could cause problems for Davidson's defense, but the sophomore, Curry, has shown tremendous leadership skills and the ability to lead his team through tough times.

If you venture with me down memory lane, it was last year that this same Davidson team nearly upset the fourth-seeded Maryland Terrapins in the first round. Curry, scored 30 points, most of which while being guarded by defensive stalwart D.J. Strawberry.

The Wildcats return all of their starters from last season, with more experience and another conference championship under their belt.

It will be a tough road in this tournament for Davidson, but with a heaping helping of Curry, anything is possible.
