Steph Curry had the best reaction to Davidson's surprise tournament berth

He was the only URI player to reach double-figures.

The Hawks never trailed and were led by Longpre's 11 points in the half and 10 by Newkirk while building as much as a nine-point advantage. The Wildcats responded with four straight points, grabbing a one-point edge on Kellan Grady's floater with 1:14 left.

Davidson would rally to take a 58-57 lead and hold on in the final seconds. URI is looking to become the first team in the conference since Saint Louis in 2012-13 to sweep both the regular-season and tournament titles. But that would be their last field goal.

Terrell made two free throws with 2.2 seconds left to make it 90-87 and seal the win.

CONWAY, S.C. - The High Point University baseball team capped off a tremendous weekend as champions of the Environmental Staffing Chanticleer Classic, defeating the host and No. 21 Coastal Carolina, 3-2, on Sunday afternoon at Springs Brooks Stadium. The Fighting Irish were the first team OUT of the 68-team field.

Jared Terrell missed a tough leaner at the other end before Langevine blocked a Grady shot to keep it a one-point game.

The games begin on Tuesday night, with two of the play-in contests.

The dynamic scorer in Curry, who chose to forgo his senior season at Davidson to enter the 2009 NBA Draft, was selected N0. The Wildcats haven't been to the NCAAs since 2015 - and haven't won a March Madness game since the Curry-led 2008 squad pulled off victories over Gonzaga, Georgetown and Wisconsin before bowing out against Kansas in the Elite Eight.

The Jayhawks open the tournament in Wichita, which is about a 2½-hour drive from their Lawrence campus, with a Thursday game against Penn. The quick opening was keyed by six points from Peyton Aldridge and an Oskar Michelsen 3-pointer.

The Hawks (16-16) made their upset bid this time at the offensive end of the floor, shooting 56.1 percent and going 9-for-18 from 3-point range. Davidson rallied down the stretch to down the Rams, 63-61, in the regular-season finale on March 2. The freshman chipped in more than half of URI's 26 points off the bench, with Jarvis Garrett also knocking down a pair of clutch 3-pointers during the deciding surge.

-The ACC led the way with nine teams in the tournament, matching a record the ever-expanding conference set a year ago.
