We need to drive automatic because we can't find the clutch

Davidson couldn't do it. Again. They give up a 7 point lead in the final minutes to lose to Georgia Southern, 76-73. Down just two with under a minute, they were unable to get off a good shot as the shot clock wound down, and two three pointers went awry as the final buzzer sounded.
The stat line of the game was 28 turnovers. Yes 28. They committed 19 in the first half, averaging nearly a turnover a minute.
Making the whole experience that much worse was that the radio feed kept going in and out during the second half, leaving listeners perilously wondering whether Brendan Winters tying shot would go in. It didn't.
We now need Furman and UNCG to win this weekend for a chance at a first place seed. But if we lose to CofC, we could finish as low as fifth in the conference.
