DAVIDSON, N.C. -- De'Mon Brooks scored 20 points to lead four players in double figures as Davidson trounced Georgia Southern 83-48 in a Southern Conference game on Saturday.
Davidson, which hasn't lost since Georgia Southern beat them 70-57 in Statesboro on Jan. 14, shot 56.4 percent (31 of 55) and held Georgia Southern to 29.8 percent (14 of 47).
The Wildcats led 18-4 on Brooks' layup midway through the first half en route to a 45-19 halftime lead, capped by Chris Czerapowicz's 3-pointer with 1 second left. The Wildcats extended the advantage to 38 points, at 79-41 with 3:42 left.
The Big 12/SEC Challenge will again feature Kansas and Kentucky, this time at Rupp Arena. That's not the only exciting matchup in next season's midseason conference showdown.
Northwestern has never made the NCAA tournament, but the Wildcats' upward trajectory suggests 2016-17 could finally be the season it happens.
Dillon Brooks, who led Oregon with 16.7 points per game last season, will opt out of the NBA draft process and return to the Ducks, a source told ESPN.
