Lake Norman is Proud of our Davidson Wildcats

Little Davidson College on the East side of Lake Norman makes the Elite 8!

Lake Norman’s Davidson From the Air

Davidson is where the basketball coach lives next-door to the English professor and both are down the street from the athletics director.

Davidson has its own honor code and students take their tests in the location of their choosing with no supervision. Davidson is certainly not alone among colleges. Others offer academics, atmosphere and a picturesque campus.

However Davidson, with just 1,700 students, the school — listed by U.S. News & World Report among the USA’s top liberal-arts colleges — also has a winning basketball program at the Division I level.

What is also different?  Not only are 11 players returning but also the five starters from last year’s team that won 29 games and went 17-1 in the Southern Conference en route to its second NCAA tournament in a row. No Jr. College Transfers or players leaving early for the Pros here!

More about Davidson: Davidson Another Wonderful Lake Norman Town

 Davidson is led by a young emerging super star named Stephen Curry.  Stephen, looking like he is 12, plays like a seasoned veteran.  Curry is averaging 33 pints a game in the NCAA tournament and is on a record pace.

Curry, is the son of NBA three-point specialist Dell Curry (13th all-time in NBA for three-pointers made) took Steph and his family all over North America: Salt Lake City, Cleveland, Charlotte, Milwaukee, Toronto, then finally back to Charlotte. Dell’s “coworkers” and friends were the likes of Tyron (Muggsy) Bogues, Alonzo Mourning and Larry Johnson.

Davidson’s Coach McKillop, recognized Stephen as such a great shooter that he gave him a green light to shoot. ‘If you’re balanced and you’re open, it is a licensed shot.’   Coach McKillop has turned out to be a prophet.  Curry has led Davidson to the elite 8 keeping the dream alive:

In the wildcats recent win:  Curry outscored the Badgers all by himself in the second half, 22-20. Here’s hoping that he remains on this current roll!

Go Wildcats!
