GREENVILLE, S.C. -- Clint Mann netted 20 points to lead four Davidson players in double figures as the Wildcats remained perfect in Southern Conference play, beating Furman 81-73 Saturday.

The Paladins (3-11, 0-3) led 30-17 with 7:45 left in the first half before an 18-3 Davidson run put the Wildcats up 35-33 with 2:01 left until halftime.
The teams were tied six times in the first 7 minutes of the second half, and neither team led by more than a basket until Mann's jumper set a 64-59 advantage with 8:07 left.
