A few years back we interviewed then NCAA newbie Jake Cohen. As the NCAA tournament came around and Davidson was about to shock the world (which they unfortunately didn't) my phone blew up with friends texted about Cohen's heritage. Cohen played great for the second year in a row and gained major attention. So the obvious question is, will he go in this year's NBA draft...
DAVIDSON, N.C. -- Davidson is joining the Atlantic 10 Conference in 2014.
The school announced Wednesday that it will leave the Southern Conference to become the A-10's 14th team on July 1, 2014.
Commissioner Bernadette McGlade says Davidson is "an ideal fit for the Atlantic 10" and "will be competitive immediately."
The move helps the A-10 maintain its...
The locker room felt like a funeral.
Eyes stared at the floor. Except for a few players talking in hushed tones to reporters, the place was silent. Pizza boxes were piled in the corner, but most of the pizza remained uneaten.
Half an hour before, this Davidson team was only 70 seconds away from being on top of the college-basketball world. The 14-seed was up six points on No. 3...
LEXINGTON, Ky. -- Davidson coach Bob McKillop carries a bunch of pennies in his back pocket.
For most, a handful of pennies won't buy much. But for McKillop, pennies buy motivation and improvement.
All year long he's filled a penny jar, adding one each time his team got better.
"I believe we needed to always have an impetus at key moments, crucial moments, reminders...
Here is some game notes and background for Davidson Wildcats (26-7, 17-1 Southern Conference].
De'Mon Brooks had 24 points and eight rebounds, and the Davidson Wildcats defended their Southern Conference championship with a wire-to-wire 74-55 victory over the College of Charleston on Monday night.
With two-time conference player of the year Jake Cohen in foul trouble most of the game, Brooks turned in a dominating inside performance showing a variety of moves the Cougars...

The Davidson Wildcats are off to another stellar season in the Southern Conference as they moved to 9-1 in the Southern Division after Thursday night’s 71-51 victory over Samford, who came in only half a game behind Elon for the SoCon North lead. The Bulldogs, under first-year coach Bennie Seltzer, made this a game for a half as they took advantage of the Wildcats being off their...

The Davidson Wildcats are back in the NCAA tournament.
Now the question those filling out brackets want to know is are they capable of making another Cinderella run like they did in 2008?
The 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.

I think it’s safe to say that had Davidson not won the SoCon tournament, they wouldn’t be playing in the Big Dance. The Wildcats have a solid team, but outside of win against Kansas on a neutral floor, their resume isn’t all that impressive. Vanderbilt and College of Charleston are the only common opponents between the two schools. The Wildcats split a pair of regular season...
The Cards will travel across the country to Portland, Oregon for their first round game against the Davidson Wildcats on Thursday. The tip-off time has not been announced yet.
A 4-seed isn’t too much of a surprise, but having to travel 2,000 miles is bizarre. With Louisville having a shot at a 3-seed, I figured if they were to get a 4-seed, they would be rewarded by staying close...

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Nik Cochran scored 21 points, including a clutch 3-pointer in the closing minutes, and Davidson shocked No. 12 Kansas 80-74 on Monday night to exact a little bit of revenge over an epic NCAA tournament loss three years ago.
JP Kuhlman added 15 points and De'Mon Brooks had 13 for the Wildcats (7-3), who led the final 23-plus minutes to knock off the defending...
