Tuesday, March 17, 2009. (AP) -- Stephen Curry scored 32 points as Davidson started its latest postseason tournament with a 70-63 victory over South Carolina on Tuesday night.
The stage may not have been as large as the Wildcats' NCAA tournament run a year ago, but Curry was just as spectacular.
The game was tied 51-all after Devan Downey's driving basket with 9:15 to go. Then Curry scored 13 of the next 15 points over eight minutes as Davidson (27-7) took control.
Andrew Lovedale had 17 points and nine rebounds for the Wildcats.
The Wildcats will play either St. Mary's or Washington State in the NIT's second round.
Downey had 18 points to lead South Carolina (21-10).
