Davidson basketball has always had a rich tradition, but not until coach Bob McKillop arrived on the scene some 25 years ago did it find a man who was genuinely caring enough to not only lay the foundation for success and then nurture the program through that success, but to also oversee the fruits of his labor. He has made Davidson...

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."

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].
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...
