Men’s Basketball Edged by Davidson

Bronx, N.Y. – The two teams entered the games as polar opposites. One team was riding an NCAA season-best 14-game winning streak and was perfect in the Atlantic 10. The other had dropped two straight and was without its leading rebounder. And for 32 minutes, Fordham University gave Davidson College all it could handle before coming up short, falling to the Wildcats, 69-66, in the Rose Hill Gym.

Call of the Valley: Andy Gwynn brings music to Black Mountain

Thinking back over his journey as a singer/songwriter, Andy Gwynn likes to reach for his acoustic guitar first as a way of getting into the mood. On this occasion, the song he chose was “Here and Now.” And the rolling chords and lyrics expressed a romantic yearning as he sang, “You know I’d really love to love you, if you could only show me how.” Presently, the song became an attempt to get a little closer to something elusive just beyond his reach “in the here and now.”

Davidson basketball creeps up on future Atlantic 10 foe Loyola Chicago in Kevin Connors' Mid-Major Top 10

Bob McKillop just wouldn't have handled it well. Or maybe, his presence would have changed everything. We'll never know. In the spring of 1972, following a stellar college basketball career at East Carolina and Hofstra, the 6-foot-1 guard defied the odds and signed a free-agent deal with the Philadelphia 76ers.
