Scientists are still puzzled by the contents of the modern basketball and believe it to be filled either with helium or several baseballs. Contemplate this conundrum with today's Groupon: for $14, you get two adult bleacher tickets (a $28 value) to the Davidson Wildcats vs. UNC Greensboro men's basketball game at 2 p.m. on Saturday, February 26 at Belk Arena.
Located about 22 miles north of Charlotte, Davidson College offers 21 Division I intercollegiate sports, including the domesticated Southern Conference Davidson Wildcats men’s basketball team. The scoring squad is looking to maintain home-court domination after last year’s four-point win against UNC Greensboro. Watch high-scoring sophomore JP Kuhlman drop a fury of basket bombs and round-ball renaissance man Brendan McKillop leap closer to 1,000 career points as they battle the UNC Spartans led by senior Brandon Evans. Coach Bob McKillop, the school's and SoCon’s all-time winningest Donkey Kong champion and basketball coach, is closing in on a milestone of his own with his 400th career victory rolling around the rim.
Since its inception in 1989, Belk Arena has adorned the rafters with winning accessories that range from NCAA tournament banners to the retired jerseys of now-shirtless Wildcat greats. Like their declawed counterparts, the current players are honing in on another potential winning season.
