Davidson move up to #23 in AP poll; breaks into the ESPN/USA Today poll at #25

After making a brief (1 week) appearance in this poll after the UNC game earlier this year, the Wildcats have rolled back into the ESPN/USA Today Top 25. The boys moved up to #23 in the AP poll. This is the first time Davidson has been ranked in both polls since the days of Lefty, and the first time being ranked in consecutive weeks since Lefty. (Edit: Davidson was ranked under Holland....sorry for the error.....I sort of lump the Holland era in with the Lefty era in my mind.)

I think Davidson was ranked in 69-70 which was Holland's first year as coach. I think they ended the year around 16 or so.
