The St. Bonaventure women's basketball team travels to Davidson for a Tuesday night contest in the first round of the Atlantic 10 Tournament. The Bonnies and Wildcats will battle for a right to continue their season in the A-10 Tournament in Pittsburgh this weekend.
BY THE NUMBERS - ST. BONAVENTURE AT DAVIDSON
- 1 - Bona's backcourt of Asianae Johnson and Deja Francis played just 27 and 25 minutes Feb. 9 at Davidson before fouling out - the only time both have fouled out in the same game.
- 5 - SBU is looking for its first A-10 Tournament win in five years. The Bonnies' last A-10 Tourney victory came vs. La Salle, 54-42, at the Richmond Coliseum on March 7, 2014.
- 7 - Mckenna Maycock turned in the seventh 20-point game of her career with 20 points Saturday at Duquesne on 8-of-13 shooting from the floor.
- 10 - Deja Francis handed out 10 assists Saturday at Duquesne, a career-high and the most assists by any player in an A-10 conference game this season.
- 12 - Danielle Migliore led the Bonnies with 12 points, coming on four 3-pointers all in the first half, in Bona's first trip to Davidson last month.
- 13 - Asianae Johnson recorded her 13th double-figure scoring game last Wednesday, the most by a Bona freshman since Dana Mitchell in '06-07 (22 games).
- 24 - Just 24 days elapsed between the Bonnies' game Feb. 9 at Davidson and the A-10 Tournament. Prior to Feb. 9, the Bonnies went 1,123 days since their last trip to Davidson (2016).
- 99 - The 99 assists from freshman Deja Francis are the most by any Bona freshman since Tricia Pawling had 108 in 1994-95. Pawling is third all-time on the SBU career assists list (434).
HELPING HAND: Freshman Deja Francis finished the regular season ranking fourth in the A-10 with 99 assists and was second in the league during A-10 play at 4.4 apg, behind only Davidson's Katie Turner (4.6 apg).
- The Bonnies and Wildcats have met only five times, the fewest meetings between SBU and any current Atlantic 10 member.
- Bona won the first three meetings before dropping a home contest, 75-68, last January. On that night, Davidson shot nearly 47 percent from the floor, led by Kianna Speight's 27 points. Danielle Migliore had 13 points for the Brown and White while Emily Calabrese finished with 10 rebounds. Mckenna Maycock missed the game due to injury.
- Prior to last year, St. Bonaventure had won the previous three meetings, all by double digits.
- The Bonnies and Wildcats met the previous two years in the Reilly Center. SBU has been to Davidson just once previously prior to this year - January 2016 when the Bonnies won, 59-47.
- The Bonnies played at Davidson in February, leading by 11 during the first half before the Wildcats came back for the win, 67-55. The Bonnies shot 39 percent from the floor and 36 percent from beyond the arc (9-for-25). Maycock had 11 points and six rebounds, but shot a season-worst 3-for-18 from the floor. Danielle Migliore had 12 points off the bench, coming on four 3-pointers that all came during the first half.
- When Davidson beat SBU on Feb. 9, the Wildcats moved to 8-2 in the conference and were second in the A-10 standings. A slow finish, though, bumped Davidson to fifth - though the Wildcats are hosting a first round game for the first time in their A-10 history. Davidson still far exceeded expectations this year - the team was picked to finish 11th in this season's Atlantic 10 preseason poll.
- Senior Justine Lyon was named to the preseason All-Conference Second Team after averaging 14.6 points, 5.2 rebounds and 2.5 assists per game as a junior. Lyon is one of three Wildcats players to be averaging at least 12 points per game this season. Lyon is second on the team at 12.9 ppg, adding 5.3 rebounds. Sarah Donovan paces a balanced scoring attack (13.0 ppg) while Katie Turner posts 12.5 ppg and a whopping 126 assists.
- As a team, the Wildcats lead the Atlantic 10 in scoring with 65.8 ppg and are second in the league with 6.7 3s per game.
