ASHEVILLE, N.C. (AP) - Nik Cochran scored 18 points on five 3-pointers, and Davidson won its 15th straight game, beating Georgia Southern 86-59 Saturday in the opening round of the Southern Conference tournament.

Tyler Kalinoski added 14 points, De'Mon Brooks 13, Jake Cohen 12, and Chris Czerapowicz 10 for the Wildcats (23-7), who ended the first half with 14 unanswered points to go into intermission ahead 45-22.
