Relive the Wildcats NCAA Run

Over Easter weekend, the Davidson Wildcats men’s basketball team advanced to the Sweet Sixteen in the NCAA Tournament with upset victories over Gonzaga and Georgetown. They continued on March 28 with a sound 73-56 victory over No. 3-seeded Wisconsin to advance to the Elite Eight. It was the first time Davidson had won a game in the NCAA tournament since 1969. Led by star player Stephen Curry, the Wildcats have become an instant national media darling. In celebration, we commissioned exclusive new features and posted two special articles from our archives, as well as several links. Check back often for updates.
