DAVIDSON, N.C. -- Davidson basketball coach Bob McKillop wiped his brow and let out a sigh of relief as he walked slowly from the court. It's been a while since he had to sweat one out like that.

The Wildcats, having already clinched a division title and closing in on the No. 1 overall seed for the upcoming Southern Conference tournament, got quite a scare Monday night from Wofford before pulling out an 80-73 victory at Belk Arena.

On its current seven-game winning streak, Davidson (24-4, 15-1) has blown out opponents by an average 20.4 points. Three of those were by at least 30, and once the Wildcats led by more than 50.

Wildcats thwart Wofford threat
Davidson's 24th victory a struggle against 9-18, last-place Terriers team

DAVIDSON - Wofford wouldn't go away, and Davidson had trouble finding the knock-out punch it needed Monday at Belk Arena.

But the Wildcats (24-4, 15-1 Southern) pulled out the victory 80-73 and won for the eighth straight time and 20th in 21 games.

They also set a school record for victories in the regular season, breaking the mark of 23 set in the 1995-96 season.

With two regular-season games left, the conference tournament and a possible NCAA or National Invitation Tournament bid, the overall mark of 27 victories, set in 1968-69, might be broken as well.
