They're also the top free throw shooting team in the nation by making 80.2
percent from the stripe. Cochran is the country's top free-throw shooter,
making 73 of his 77 attempts (.948) this season.

The Terriers have lost two in a row and five of their last six overall. That
includes a 69-63 road loss to The Citadel on Thursday. The Terriers were paced
in that contest by Karl Cochran with 15 points, but he shot a mere 6-of-17
from the floor, including 3-of-12 behind the 3-point line. Spencer Collins
accounted for 14 points and Lee Skinner tacked on 12 off the bench.
Karl Cochran is leading the team in scoring with 15.5 ppg, while Skinner paces
the squad with 7.3 rpg and totals 10.7 ppg as well. Wofford is first in the
SoCon in scoring defense and is giving up only 61 points, but the Terriers are
last in scoring offense at 59 ppg.
Davidson won this year's first meeting, 63-56, at home on Dec. 8. Nik Cochran
had 15 points and 10 rebounds. The Wildcats have won seven of the last 10
meetings. Although the Terriers held the Wildcats in check in the first
meeting, that was nearly two months ago. Since a 70-57 loss at Georgia
Southern on Jan. 14, the Wildcats have scored no less than 71 points in any
game. The Terriers have a recipe for great defense, but their own point
production is limited and that will be their downfall once again.
Sports Network Predicted Outcome: Davidson 71, Wofford 59
