GREENVILLE, S.C. -- Clint Mann netted 20 points to lead four Davidson players in double figures as the Wildcats remained perfect in Southern Conference play, beating Furman 81-73 Saturday.
The Wildcats (9-6, 4-0) drained 48.3 percent (28 of 58) of their shots, including 43.5 percent (10 of 23) from 3-point range. Davidson scored 17 points off 13 Furman turnovers and led in second-chance points 18-6.
The Paladins (3-11, 0-3) led 30-17 with 7:45 left in the first half before an 18-3 Davidson run put the Wildcats up 35-33 with 2:01 left until halftime.
The teams were tied six times in the first 7 minutes of the second half, and neither team led by more than a basket until Mann's jumper set a 64-59 advantage with 8:07 left.
Colorado State graduate transfer John Gillon has chosen Syracuse, giving the Orange a potential starter at point guard entering the 2016-17 season.
DeSean Murray, who averaged 20.2 points as a sophomore at Presbyterian, will transfer to Auburn to play for coach Bruce Pearl.
Former Kentucky guard Ed Davender, the only Wildcat with at least 1,500 points and 400 assists, has died. He was 49.
