Jalen Adaway didn’t pump fake this time, deciding it was time to trust his jump shot with a pack of doubting Wildcats giving him ample real estate.
A slight slip of the tongue may have conveyed St. Bonaventure’s focus better than anything else Mark Schmidt and his players said Sunday.
Bob McKillop bore some of the blame for Davidson’s loss at St. Bonaventure on Sunday afternoon, namely for the Wildcats’ lack of post presence.

By CHUCKIE MAGGIO St. Bonaventure’s overarching goal is always the same this time of year.

Dayton has won just one A-10 Tournament game in the last four years. The Flyers were the No. 1 seed in 2016, but fell in the semis. They were the No. 1 seed again in 2017, but lost to No. 9 seed Davidson. A Thursday eight-nine game loss to VCU followed in 2018 before a quarterfinal loss to No. 6 Saint Louis in their only game last season.
The Bonnies fell into a double-digit deficit just 10 minutes in and never worked their way back into the game, dropping to 17-9 overall and 9-4 in the Atlantic 10 as their five-game win streak came to a halt.
