DAVID – son Slays Goliath Again … Cinderella Davidson College & Stephen Curry Continue on their March Madness


Once again, David has slain Goliath Davidson College has done it again. This time they knocked off #3 seed in the Midwest Regional Wisconsin, 73–56. We love underdogs and always have …  

David reached his hand into the bag and took out a stone. He slung it, striking the Philistine on the forehead. The stone sank deeply into his forehead, and he fell down with his face to the ground.

David prevailed over the Philistine with just the sling and the stone. (Samuel 17:1-58)

Why do we love NCAA College Basketball’s March Madness? There are Davidsontwo answers. Unlike the BCS Football Bowl fiasco that we are presented with every years where a mythical College Football Champion is crowned, college basketball presents us with a playoff system which captures the hearts, minds and imagination of all that watch. Even people who are not college basketball fans find themselves caught up in the madness. Once our own college team is eliminate or teams we have picked have lost, we become unofficial alumni of the lowest seed in the tournament. This year, we are all alumni of Davidson.

What do we love most about March Madness … Schools like Davidson. Long before our brackets are busted and there is no shot of winning any office pools, we look for the upsets. We want Cinderella to win, even if it means that any chance of winning the office pool goes down the drain. In many respects, it justifies losing. There is a new Cinderella in town and the glass slipper is on the feet of the Davidson Wildcats.

Every year there seems to be a new Cinderella at the Big Dance. This year its Stephen Curry and the Davidson Wildcats. The Davidson Wildcats not only beat #3 seeded Wisconsin last night, they handled the Big Ten Champs rather easily. The second half was no contest as Davidson outscored the Badgers, 37–20. Stephen Curry has been simply amazing as Davidson, the winners of 25 straight games, is starting to look less and less like an underdog.

Davidson started their March Madness Dance by taking out the former Cinderella darlings Gonzaga 82–76. Then Davidson defeated who many had picked to go to the Final Four, the Georgetown Hoyas, 74–70. Up next is the #1 seed in the Midwest Kansas Jay Hawks … will to Davidson miracle continue with a birth into the NCAA College Basketball Final Four.

      Every one likes the underdog, except I guess if you went to Gonzaga, Georgetown or Wisconsin.
