On Sunday, Davidson eked out a one-point win over Rhode Island to win its first-ever Atlantic-10 championship, and one former Davidson star was super excited about it. Stephen Curry was watching from home as he rehabs his tweaked ankle, and he took to social media to express his joy.
Coach Dan Hurley talked to CBS about slowing Trae Young: "Just got to be able to mix up your ball screen coverages, throw different types of defenders at him, throw different types of looks".
New Orleans Pelicans head coach Alvin Gentry says that he is confident that superstar big man Anthony Davis will play on Sunday against the Utah Jazz, according to the team. And this just a taste of what's to come now that March Madness is upon us.
"I know some of the teams on the bubble probably aren't that happy with us right now, but we're playing for something", said A-10 rookie of the year Grady, who led Davidson with 17 points.
Rhode Island is the first No. 1 seed in the Atlantic 10 to reach the conference championship game since Saint Louis in 2013. Now, the Rams are one step closer to repeating their Selection Sunday itinerary from a year ago.

Spurs , who did not win in their first three league games there, are a point behind second-placed Manchester United . Kane had a late header disallowed for offside after the impressive Christian Eriksen found him with a corner.
The Rams never trailed in the final 5:42, jumping ahead for good when Russell knocked down a 3-pointer from the left corner to make it 76-73.
Shavar Newkirk had 18 points, eight rebounds and six assists for the fourth-seeded Hawks (16-16), who drubbed Rhode Island 78-48 last week. Jeff Dowtin wound up trying a 3-pointer that missed.
From that point, the Rams rallied. That's just silly, that a guy would take away a kid's chance to fire up a half-court shot.
Saint Joseph's: The Hawks won seven of eight before Saturday's loss and started only one senior in the conference tournament. "Not only did we get there, but we think we can win in the tournament". They're poised to contend in the Atlantic 10 again next season.
Saint Joseph's: The Hawks' season is likely finished. Rhode Island managed a season split with both teams.
