Davidson adds NC State to schedule
Davidson adds game at N.C. State on Dec. 21
Davidson has added a third ACC opponent to its 2007-08 schedule, playing at N.C. State Dec. 21. Davidson will also get a home game with the Wolfpack in the 2008-09 season.
The two teams haven't played since 1995. Both teams have been mentioned in preseason top 25 polls for next season. Davidson went 29-5 last season and has every scholarship player returning, including freshman standout Stephen Curry. N.C. State returns four starters from a 20-16 team.
Davidson has already scheduled two games at Charlotte Bobcats Arena against ACC opponents. Davidson will play North Carolina in a 7 p.m. game televised by ESPN Nov. 14, and will also play Duke Dec. 1. Coach Bob McKillop said it has not been determined whether the Duke or N.C. State games will be televised.
Davidson also has a game scheduled at Charlotte Dec. 5, and another game to be scheduled at Western Michigan. McKillop said the school is still trying to determine the rest of its nonconference opponents.
"We want to provide the best experience for our players and for our fans," McKillop said. "These games do that, and also give the best exposure to our program."
