From Duke Basketball Report

Davidson & The Other Fifteen
by DBR, March 24th, 2008

We’ve been telling you guy for several years now that Davidson is a brilliantly coached team, that the only thing separating them from their so-called betters is talent. Bob McKillop has solved that problem as well, at least for the short term, with the recruitment of Stephen Curry (a player that the ACC, en masse, passed on by the way) and his backcourt mate Jason Richards, who give them a chance to beat anyone. They had UCLA down by 18 earlier this year, pushed Duke, UNC and State to the wire, and ran off 23 in a row after those losses.

People say they were shocked that Davidson beat Georgetown. They shouldn’t have been. We certainly weren’t. Davidson is a most worthy opponent, and they deserve their spot in the Sweet 16.
