Davidson preview

From the Davidson website:

This time last year, Davidson basketball could have passed the plate among its Southern Conference brethren and maybe come away with a sympathy card or two. Well, on second thought, maybe not. Still, Davidson had graduated seven seniors from the 2006 Southern Conference champions, a team that went on to lead Big Ten champion Ohio State at halftime in the NCAA tournament before losing a close game. Included among those seven seniors lost were the team’s two leading scorers and its leader in assists.

Last year’s Wildcats were picked to finish fourth in the SoCon South Division. There were no expectations for the team – except those held by coach Bob McKillop, his staff and players. They were not ready to surrender an inch. Not only were they not buying what the prognosticators were peddling, they turned it around and used it as motivation.
