Spider comeback falls short against Davidson

Posted: Updated:
RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -

Senior Darien Brothers scored his 1,000th career point, but a Richmond comeback fell short in a 70-64 loss to Davidson Saturday night in the Robins Center.

Brothers scored 16 points, making 5-of-9 field goals and 2-of-3 three-pointers to finish the night with 1,004 career points. That puts him 40th on Richmond's all-time career list, having passed Jonathan Baker (1,002).

Richmond trailed by 23 in the first half and 19 at the half, but stormed back in the second-half to tie the game at 61 on a jumper by Trey Davis with 2:21 left.

Davidson's Nik Cochran made a three-pointer at the other end and the Wildcats were able to hold off Richmond (9-5).

Kendall Anthony had 13 points and Davis had a career-high 12 points, making all four field goals. Greg Robbins added 11 on 5-of-8 shooting.

Jake Cohen led Davidson with 19 points and De'Mon Brooks had 14. JP Kulhman added 10 and Cochran had nine.

The loss marks the Spiders' third straight defeat.  Last Saturday, Richmond was nipped by George Mason on a buzzer-beating three pointer, and prior to that the Spiders fell at Kansas.

The Spiders may have been dealt an even bigger blow when Derrick Williams went down with an ankle injury late in the first half.  Chris Mooney did not have an update on Williams' status after the game.

The Spiders return to action Wednesday for their final non-conference game of the season, hosting Air Force at 7:00pm.
