Well, the shooting star from the NCAA's first round has found things a bit more difficult today against Georgetown. Davidson's sweet-shooting guard Stephen Curry, who scored 40 points and hit eight-of-10 three-pointers Friday against Gonzaga, has been limited to five points on two-of-eight shooting in the first half against the Hoyas. The 10th-seeded Wildcats trail second-seeded Georgetown 38-27 at halftime.
The Hoyas, who lead the country in field goal percentage defense, seem to have bothered Curry with their tremendous length, particularly the 6-foot-8 Patrick Ewing Jr. In addition, Georgetown has been switching on every Davidson screen, not giving Curry an inch to shoot even if it causes some matchup problems. (The 7-foot-2 Roy Hibbert once found himself on the perimeter guarding Curry.) The Son of Dell will need another unconscious second-half performance like the one he had Friday to give the Wildcats a chance.
