For the second straight year, the No. 1 seed in the Atlantic 10 tournament almost lost in the quarterfinals.
St. Bonaventure upset Saint Louis 71-68 last season. Davidson needed a buzzer-beater from A-10 Player of the Year Tyler Kalinoski to beat La Salle 67-66 in the first game Friday at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn (my photos here).
Davidson trailed by as many as 18 points in the first half and trailed by nine with 4:45 left.
The Wildcats will play the winner of the second game today, VCU vs. Richmond, in the semifinals Saturday.
