JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. -- Davidson guard Janna Magette gave the Wildcats a 68-67 lead after a layup with 12 seconds remaining and made two free throws with six seconds left to seal a 70-67 win over ETSU on Saturday afternoon from Brooks Gym.

Davidson (7-12, 2-8) led 29-28 at the break after a defense oriented first half. The Wildcats shot 11-26 (.423) compared to the Lady Bucs (3-16, 3-7) 9-31 (.290). Davidson blocked five shots in the half while the Lady Bucs forced the Wildcats into 12 turnovers.

The largest lead of the game was 13 points, with Davidson holding a 59-46 lead with 9:04 remaining in the game. Over the next five and a half minutes, the Lady Bucs reeled off a 15-4 run, fueled by three steals by freshman guard Racquel Ellis. ETSU took a 67-66 lead with 56 seconds remaining after a made free throw by junior forward Megan Jackson. From then on, Magette took over, scoring the final four points of the game.

Both teams shot the lights out from three-point range, with the Wildcats shooting 47 percent (8-17) and the Lady Bucs shooting 9-18 (.500). ETSU held an advantage on the boards, outrebounding the taller Davidson squad, 40-29.

Her best scoring effort was a 32 point outburst at Davidson on Dec. 6, 2000. Junior guard Erin Thurman (14) and sophomore forward Misty Copas (10) also scored in double-digits for ETSU.
