Davidson tops No. 25 Rhode Island for A-10 title

Davidson edged the top-seeded University of Rhode Island 58-57 in Sunday's Atlantic 10 championship game at Capital One Arena. Currently Davidson sits on a three-game win streak. And this just a taste of what's to come now that March Madness is upon us.

Peyton Aldridge lead Davidson with 13 points and seven rebounds.

His reaction, captured on Instagram, partly defies transcription, but there was a "Yeah!" and a "Silver Fox, I see you" directed at Davidson Coach Bob McKillop.

Rhode Island would take that lead into the half.

"There's going to be a point in time when I'm daydreaming this summer and I'll say: 'You know what?" Rhode Island (25-6) is ranked No. 25 in the country and upset Creighton in the NCAA tourney previous year. He has been particularly impressive since the All-Star break, putting together three 40-point performances, including a 53-point, 18-rebound outburst in the Pelicans' victory over the Phoenix Suns on February 26.

Following a timeout, Stanford Robinson's jump shot from the corner rimmed out and went out of bounds off of a Davidson player to give the Rams the ball back with ten seconds to play.

Bullish: Buffalo wins MAC title over Toledo, NCAA bid
Toledo's Marreon Jackson (Garfield Heights High) knocked down a 3-pointer to tie the score, 63-63, with 4:48 to play. On the season, Central Michigan basketball averages 78.1 points, 36.6 rebounds and 13.3 assists per game.

"It is definitely motivating", Robinson said, standing in the locker room after the win. The Rams were 14-for-31 on 3-pointers on Saturday, a season high in makes, and URI handed out 22 assists against just five turnovers.

Rhode Island lost at Davidson in the regular-season finale March 2 by two points.

"They kind of hurt us, beating us on Senior Night", Russell said. "Being able to hit open shots, that's what we did". That was the second most in Atlantic 10 tourney history, a record that is held by St. Bonaventure.

"Coach drew up an awesome play", Dowtin said.

The co-regular season champs are evenly matched - splitting their two games - and both looked dominant in their semifinal wins, but more fans, familiar rims, and the ability to sleep in their own bed is enough of a difference for the Quakers to reach the NCAA Tournament for the first time in 11 years.

Davidson shot just 28.6 percent from the field in the second half, and Grady's victor was its lone basket over the final 14-plus minutes.
