Also, on Monday Jake Cohen and Davidson upset #12 Kansas 80-74, giving Kansas its third loss of the season. Junior Jake Cohen, dropped 12 points on the Jayhawks to help lead Davidson to their biggest win since its Steph Curry days.

Mean while on Tuesday Bryan Cohen faced #1 Syracuse, but couldn’t keep up with the Orangemen. Cohen started but was scoreless. He did have three assists and two boards in twenty minutes of play. Brandon Reese for the Orangemen played 2 minutes and grabbed a rebound.

In other action, Vermont beat Fairleigh Dickinson and Josh Elbaum played 10 minutes and added 2 points.

Looking forward to March Madness!
