The Story of their Friendship and Love for DC BBall

I come to you this Christmas Day eve with the story of two men. Their story has already been told to many by their friends, and CSTV's Josh Herwitt. Now Michael Kruse has gotten into the act. Bro Krift and Tripp Cherry are just two normal people. But when it comes to Davidson basketball, nothing can keep them from what they love so dearly. In yet another stirring article on why Davidson basketball is so stirring, so transforming...so real, Kruse has immortalized Cherry and Krift for their undying loyalty to each other and to the basketball program that Bob McKillop has built over the last 19 years.

"In the department of Davidson fandom, there's a funny but not altogether untrue test: The merely casually interested are separated from the truly totally committed by weeknight trips to spots on the map of the South like Statesboro, Ga., and Johnston City, Tenn.

Bro and Tripp passed the test.


This is a story about being a fan. This is a story about being a friend. But mostly, this is a story about the sort of stuff that makes people do things like drive 25 straight hours to watch 40 minutes of college basketball.

The good stuff.

The stuff that matters."
