Nevertheless, Davidson finished the year with an overall record of244 and 171 in the SoCon. They were ranked 31st in the nation by the ESPN/USAToday poll and #4 among mid-majors. In the months of December, January andFebruary, the Wildcats lost a total of one game.
On March 3, 2007, the Wildcats won their second straightSouthern Conference Tournament Championship, and third in 5 years, anaccomplishment that should silence critics who claimed McKillop could not winat tournament time. Davidson defeated College of Charleston 7265, afterwaltzing past Furman and UT Chattanooga in the earlier rounds. In 2007,McKillop's Wildcats represented the Southern Conference in the NCAA tournamentby battling number 4 seed Maryland losing by 12 at Buffalo.
In 2008, after compiling a perfect regular season conferencerecord, the Wildcats ran their record to three straight Southern ConferenceTournament Championships, beating Elon University in the title game. Theyentered the NCAA tournament as a 10-seed and took down 7-seed Gonzaga, fortheir first NCAA Tournament win since 1969. They then won their second-roundgame against the 2-seed Georgetown to advance to the Sweet 16. Almost a weekafter beating Georgetown, McKillop and Davidson stunned the world by upsettingthe 3 seed and regular season Big Ten champions Wisconsin. This win putDavidson in the Elite Eight for the first time since Lefty Driesell got themthere in 1969.
The 2008 season has been a testament to McKillop'srecruiting prowess, as they have been carried by the shooting of Stephen Curry,who did not get a second look from most of the bigger programs.
