Updates and Changes

-Make sure to mark your calendars for January 10. The men's basketball game against Furman has been moved to that date. The schedule has been updated on the Davidson website. That game will be held in the Bi-Lo Center in Greenville, SC.

-On a day when the Men's basketball team was vying for their third straight victory over Big 12 foe Missouri, the Davidson Women's basketball team came within 6 points of upsetting the no. 9 ranked Bulldogs of Georgia. The Wildcats had four women score in double figures including 12 from Danielle Hemerka and newcomer Julia Paquette. The Wildcats shot 6-12 from 3 land in the second half to build and sustain a six-point lead. But the Bulldogs hung around and made a surge at the end to clip the Wildcats and maintain their ranking. Like the men, the women turned ball over too many times (18) and the Bulldogs scored 12 points on the fast break. Look for this women's team to continue turning heads this season. They are really good.

-The Men's swimming team beat the College of Charleston in the Davidson Invitational over the weekend while the Women's team came in third place in front of the University of North Florida. Merritt Peale continued to lead the Men's attack while Alanna Ream set a new meet record in the 200 butterfly with a time of 2:07.71.

-Prediction for the BCS national championship game: Ohio State over USC, 28-21.
