Pinch Me Now

With the latest release of the ESPN/USA Today Coaches Top 25 poll, Davidson received 31 votes overall, placing them 31st in the nation. They are only two votes behind the ACC's Boston College and only four places behind Virginia Tech. I never thought I would see the day when Davidson was officially voted above the likes of Indiana, Kentucky, Arizona and Maryland. Lefty Driesell would be proud.

As we look forward to tonight's game against Wofford, we should keep an eye on a few records. Stephen Curry is only 15 three-pointers away from setting a new NCAA record for threes by a freshman in one season. Curry is averaging 20.4 points a game which is second amongst all NCAA freshman behind Texas' Kevin Durant who is sixth overall with 24.9 ppg.

Davidson is also closing in on another record of note: most wins in a season. With their win over Western Carolina on Saturday, the Wildcats set the record for most wins in the regular season with 23. If they win out this week and advance to the Southern Conference tournament final, the Wildcats will set a new record for most overall wins in a season, besting 68-69's 27-3 mark.

It's a great day to be a Wildcat!
