The Cardinals finished the first half with a 7-1 run to take a 33-25 halftime lead. Louisville held Davidson to a season-low first half scoring output as the Wildcats shot just 30 percent from the field. Kuric had 10 first-half points and Siva tallied nine.

Davidson’s late push kept the Wildcats from a season-low point total. The Wildcats tallied just 61 against Charlotte.
