At long last, the beating bleeding stopped

Davidson beat UNC Charlotte Saturday night, 79-51.

You read that right.

Twenty. Eight. Points.

When I was an undergrad, Charlotte was only a few years removed from a Final Four appearance. I think we beat them once in four years. As it happens, the last time Davidson beat Charlotte was 2002.

The winner of the annual game gets custody of what DrFrankLives calls, without fear of contradiction, “the ugliest trophy in college sports,” the Hornets Nest Trophy (lovingly referred to, I had forgotten, as The Brain on a Stick).

The Charlotte Observer Sunday morning said that with six minutes left in the game, Davidson fans started chanting, “Stop the beating!” Turns out they were actually chanting, “Stop the bleeding!” Same difference.

UNCG actually is picked to win the Southern Conference this year, but with the 18-year-old son of longtime Charlotte Hornets shooting whiz Dell Curry on the team, the Wildcats might give the Spartans a run for their money.
