Men's Basketball vs. Greensboro

No one on the corner has swagger like us. Again.

Collective exhale.

This is how Wildcat nation is feeling after the Davidson men’s team’s 70-49 win over UNC Greensboro Wednesday night at Belk Arena.

Around here, things have been just a little off lately. After the loss to the College of Charleston Feb. 7, we weren’t even sure how to run the post-game. You see, the winning team goes first. And well, suddenly, that was not the Wildcats.

I put down my thoughts after that loss, and then suddenly, it’s been four games since. Some of that is due to the fact, sure, that’s it’s easier for me not to write when it isn’t all roses and kittens around Belk Arena, but mostly it’s due to the fact that it’s officially baseball season at Wilson Field. (Four games this weekend if you need to get your fix.)

I really meant to write and share my thoughts after the four games in between Charleston and last night, but life happened.

I made the trip to Furman, but ended up writing the game story. And then there was that thing with the ankle heard round the world. Though I will tell you that my Valentine’s Day dinner at Chick-fil-A with SID Marc Gignac, Davidson play-by-play extraordinaire John Kilgo, and color guy Kenny Loggins was pretty special. (Complete with a cappella singers in tuxedos, free cheesecake and carnations.)

And what can I say about The Citadel game? If you are looking to read negative reviews, sorry, you just won’t find them here. That’s just not what I do. The players and coaches are friends and colleagues, and for all, I have deep respect. Except when I lose in darts. And anyways, that’s what the Internet is for.

And as I was glancing over the stats and making the post-game books Saturday after the Butler game, I was thinking about six losses. And how many teams in the country would love to have six losses. And how I could easily name the six, but not more than a handful of the 23 wins.

And last night... Last night just felt right. Felt familiar. Didn’t it?

The Joker ended up with 20 points, 10 rebounds and five assists in 26 minutes.

There were highlight-reel worthy dunks from Frank Ben-EASY (the people love some Frank Ben-EASY, eh?) and the Big Cat, fan favorites Can Civi (happy birthday from the D-Block... A-maz-ing.) and Will Reigel making steals and layups.

And that NASTY four-point play.

But mostly, there was a win.

And there was Swagger. Again.


  1. And I was thinking about six losses when I was going through the numbers and compiling the post-game booklets after the Butler game on Saturday. And how many teams in the country would want six defeats? And how I could readily name the six, but just a few of the 23 victories.

  2. I love to watch Men's Basketball, and one of the best basketball player of mine is Luka Garza, and I always try to support him in every match.

  3. I absolutely concur with you as a college student who deals with this issue frequently. I absolutely appreciate how challenging it may be to turn in a project on time, despite the fact that you claim that all students value their time. Utilizing online assignment assistance is the only approach to complete a project on time.

  10. I recently watched the movie "Gladiator" on Netflix, and it was an absolutely amazing experience. This epic historical drama took me on a mesmerizing journey through ancient Rome, filled with stunning visuals and powerful storytelling. The film's attention to detail, from the breathtaking gladiatorial battles to the grandeur of the Roman Empire, truly transported me to another time and place. The performances by the cast, especially Russell Crowe in the lead role, were nothing short of extraordinary, capturing the emotional depth and strength of their characters. The gripping narrative, filled with themes of honor, revenge, and redemption, kept me engaged from start to finish. "Gladiator" is a cinematic masterpiece that showcases the perfect blend of action, drama, and heart. I highly recommend this movie to everyone; it is an absolute must-watch.

  11. I am not familiar with this information. It is quite beneficial to me. I appreciate you sharing.

  12. The fake designer bags is a versatile and practical bag that lives up to its name. Made from the brand's signature Monogram canvas, this tote is both durable and stylish. The bag features a spacious interior with a large zippered pocket and a D-ring for attaching keys or other accessories. The sides of the bag can be cinched in to create a more streamlined silhouette, or left open for additional space.
