DAVIDSON, N.C. (AP) - Guard Brendan McKillop matched a season high with 21 points as Davidson beat Charlotte 82-68 on Saturday night.
McKillop hit seven 3-pointers as the Wildcats connected on a season-high 12 in 29 attempts (41.4 percent).
Davidson (5-4) led just 30-29 at halftime but broke the game open with a 12-3 spurt early in the second half. The Wildcats went on to lead by as many as 19 points, 68-49, before the 49ers cut the margin in the final minutes.
Davidson also got 18 points from guard JP Kuhlman, and 19 points and nine rebounds from forward Jake Cohen.
Derrio Green scored 16 to lead the 49ers (4-6), Chris Braswell had 15 points and nine rebounds and Javarris Barnett scored 14. Jamar Briscoe, who was questionable coming into the game because of an Achilles injury, struggled to 2-of-11 shooting and finished with eight points.
