Davidson was active on both ends, with four steals that led to fastbreak points and assists for other teammates as well as himself.

Davidson said that’s a part of his role on the team this year, saying “being the point guard when we’re out and running, keeping everybody together on defense . . . [that] comes from Coach [Bowler’s] system.”
