DAVIDSON-Davidson has met the demands of playing in a more competitive conference.

The Davidson Wildcats (21-11) are coming from an 58-57 win over Rhode Island to capture the A-10 Conference title. "And (Davidson is) a senior-laden team".

While Calipari hasn't ruled Vanderbilt out for Thursday's first round matchup against Davidson, the coach noted he wouldn't play the freshman if he isn't 100 percent. This is Davidson's sixth appearance in the tournament since the 2004-05 season.
