At the half, Davidson leads Elon by a score of 35-28. Ian Johnson leads all Wildcat scorers with 16 points on 4 three-pointers. Davidson has shot 17 three-pointers, hitting 8. Elon has been very effective at diminishing the Wildcat post game and Davidson has been forced to shoot open looks from outside. Meno has come up big for the Cats with several offensive rebounds, but unfortunately Davidson hasn't seemed tough enough to finish inside. Once again, the refs know who they want in the championship game but Davidson will have to work to overcome that disadvantage.
If the Cats can hit a few more threes and finish on their drives to the paint, this game should be wrapped up. But Elon is effective at employing Davidson's strategies against them, hitting several turn around jumpers in the lane and getting hot shooters open on perimeter rotations. If the Phoenix heat up, this could be a long afternoon.
On a side note, it seems that Chattanooga fans across the way don't know who to pull for. They just want someone to get hurt or something.
