Whither the Wildcats?

Filed under: Wildcats — Lex @ 8:33 am

Before the season started, the Davidson Wildcats were looking like the next Big Thing, and with games scheduled against Carolina, Duke and UCLA, they were going to have some early opportunities to make an impression on the NCAA selection committee.

They’ve made an impression, all right — as a team that cannot close the deal. The UCLA loss was particularly galling; there’s no way the team should have let an 18-point lead slip away.

This team is good enough that moral victories shouldn’t be enough. Now, the team probably has to win out in the SoCon tourney to go to the dance at all, and it’s probably looking at a 15 seed, at best, if it does. That’s better than a lot of schools do over the course of decades, but this team is better than that. It just hasn’t played that way, and, yeah, I’m disappointed.

  1. Don’t be disappointed. It’s still early. I also respectfully disagree that they will be, at best, a 15 seed in the NCAA Tournament….assuming, of course, that they run through the SoCon again like last year and win the SoCon Tournment to even get an NCAA bid.

    Keep your chin up! Go Wildcats!!
