Good time for Ford to have the guys playing their best ball of the year. His ATO adjustments were on point all game. And that 1-3-1/M2M conversion defense had Davidson completely baffled. McKillop is one of the best X and O guys in the country and he had no answer.

Which is surprising since he's built such a versatile team, and it goes w/o saying they're well coached. They were taller than us, can shoot the 3 ball so much better, and play decent D. In fact in the first half once they got on a run I thought uh oh we're in trouble. Davidson can not match us athletically, however, and that shone thru in the second half. But really it was that our guys played more skillfully than they did in the second half. Bess was phenomenal with that pull up jumper. Isabell not only shot it well but made some nice assists. JGood and French played their usual solid games, boards, D, and timely shots. Way to go JGood w/ the 2 threes. If you can do it today, you can do it every game.

Even though Davidson had played one less game in three days, I thought they were the tired team in the second half. We beat them physically which is what this team has to do to win. They had everything in their favor today; an 8 man rotation to our 6, two first team A10'ers, taller bigs. They just didn't have the heart our guys showed.

Spot on. Ford had an epiphany late in this season and realized ways to leverage our athleticism. We are more athletic than almost every team we play against (in conference at least) and he's been rolling out some new schemes on both sides that have proven to be pretty effective.

Incredible that Davidson didnt muster so much as a small run in the second half. Dominant performance by these hungry billikens. 

They packed it in early, after the Bills hit them with that run at the end of the 1st half.  They mustered only 15 points in the entire second half.  Gudmundsson was the only one with any fight left in him, and the Bills smothered and frustrated him, too.
