During Steph Curry’s journey to the Finals, his alma mater’s been getting calls from kids wanting things: Shoes, visits, even contact information for Curry’s agent for NBA tryouts. Davidson men’s basketball SID Joey Beeler said he got over 40 calls in two days this week. (Beeler had to change his number.) Here are…
Vander Blue took over in the final moments to lead Marquette past an upset-minded Davidson team today in Lexington, though a brutal blunder on the Wildcats' part sealed their fate as much as the Golden Eagles' suddenly hot shooting.

Stephen Curry will forgo his senior season at Davidson and enter the NBA Draft, raining tears all over the Southern Conference—and also breaking a special promise he made to one little blogger.
Davidson bombed out of the Southern Conference tourney in the semifinals, bringing their season to a halt at 26-7 and probably leaving last year's tourney darling on the outside looking in.
Surely ESPN spends a lot of time and money putting together its annual BracketBusters event. But if all they want to do is be the PR firm for the Curry family, why bother?

I don't understand the Sonya Curry phenomenon. (Actually, I didn't even know there was one, but apparently it's tearing up the charts.) The mother of Davidson
sharpshooter Stephen Curry is an attractive 40-something teacher and a former athlete herself, but does that really make her any more interesting than any of…
Being a major college basketball coach is like taking a daily bath in crock pot set at 450; you live in your basketball world 24/7, eating and breathing the insanity until stuff like what you're about to read below slowly starts making sense. Following the jump is a rather remarkable letter from Loyola, Maryland…
In our latest edition of Coaching Tactics For The Comically Insane, we present Loyola. Md. coach Jimmy Patsos, who had a foolproof way to defend Davidson's Stephen Curry on Tuesday. Patsos rolled out the triangle-and-two, and with devastating effect: Curry was held scoreless. One problem, though. Patsos' team lost by…
People can't seem to get over the fact that Donovan McNabb was unclear on the concept of tying (he's a professional football player!), but we guess Arizona's basketball team didn't get the memo either. See, if two teams have the same score when that last buzzer goes off, the game continues with an extra five-minute…
Davidson fans are overjoyed that guard Stephen Curry will not parlay his NCAA tournament popularity into a lucrative NBA contract. One other perk for school will be that his mother, Sonya, will also be in attendance next year, doing wonders for their national television coverage and alumni association.

One of our best friends went to Davidson, and, not wanting to dare to miss history, booked a whirlwind trip from Columbia, Missouri to Detroit yesterday. We've made similar, holy shit we have to BE there sports trips before, and they rarely turn out well. It's one thing to take a crazy 24-hour jaunt to see your team…
And now the Davidson Wildcats are all that stands in the way of an all 1-seed Final Four. If they, and we've been assured all day they are not just Stephen Curry, can deal Bill Self another regional final loss, they will be the first 10 seed to make the Final Four.
Storming The Floor looks at last night's Sweet 16 action.
