DAVIDSON, N.C. (AP) -- The Davidson Wildcats may not have a marquee shooter like Stephen Curry or any players with NCAA tournament experience on the current roster, but they certainly don't lack for confidence.

The 13th seeded Wildcats say they won't be intimidated and they have what it takes to make a deep run in the tournament beginning Thursday when they face Big East Conference tournament champion Louisville, the No. 4 seed in the West region, in Portland, Ore.

Davidson junior forward Clint Mann says the Wildcats absolutely have what it takes to repeat what the Curry and company did in 2008, reaching the regional finals after upset wins over Gonzaga, Georgetown and Wisconsin.

Mann says you have to believe that and you have to trust your teammates and know what we're capable of.
