Frampton knocks down 8 treys, Davidson clobbers Richmond
DAVIDSON, N.C. (AP) Luke Frampton scored 24 points, knocking down eight 3-pointers, and Davidson clobbered Richmond 75-62 Saturday, defeating the Spiders for the first time in nearly three years.
Frampton made more 3s than Richmond, with six, did as a team. Half of Davidson's made field goals were from distance and the Wildcats shot 14 of 30 from behind the arc, 28 of 60 overall.
Frampton took a defensive rebound the other way and dropped in a 3-pointer to open scoring in the second half and, already up by 10, Davidson launched a 10-2 run, shooting 4-for-4 with a pair of Frampton 3s over the next 1:48. Until Luka Brajkovic ended the run with a hook, Frampton had scored 15 straight points spanning halftime.
Jacob Gilyard and Nathan Cayo scored 16 each for Richmond (7-11, 1-4), which had won four straight against Davidson.
