Thursday, 3/10/11, 10:00 pm, C. Shaw Smith 900 Room—Come out this Thursday to support one of Davidson’s most successful student bands, You and Your Effects! It will be the last Live Thursday for several of the members and they’ve been working hard on some new music so this will be one performance you don’t want to miss! Opening act will be Chocolate Rain!
“At Davidson, hoops and books coexist,” the USAToday headline read when Davidson men’s basketball Wildcats went to the Elite Eight in ’08, thrusting our fair academic village into the national spotlight.
“Just doing our job as Davidson students,” scholarly athletes and fans told puzzled reporters who seemed a bit unaccustomed to interviewing college athletes who, you know, study and stuff. Today, spotlight or not, the Wildcat sporting spirit, studying and stuff continue apace on this campus.
Consider, for instance, that when Davidson math students get together, zany things are wont to happen. When they include Daniel Martin ’11 and they get together with Associate Professor of Math Tim Chartier and his sleight-of-handfuls of computer code and his sensibility of a professional mime, zany things are sure to happen.

That ought to get you in the mood for some real-time Davidson Wildcat athletics this weekend. On campus, baseball all weekend, women’s lacrosse and basketball Sunday, men’s basketball Saturday afternoon…. And on Saturday at 2 p.m., the spotlight will be on Davidson’s pioneering generation of Elite Eight athletes on Saturday in Belk Arena, as Davidson celebrates the men of the Lefty Driesell Years and the late Mike Maloy ’70, Davidson’s first African-American varsity scholarship athlete. Driesell called him “the greatest player I ever coached.” On the court, Maloy led the Wildcats to three consecutive NCAA Tournament appearances, including two straight Elite Eight runs, and off the court, he was a pioneer who used his prominence as a national basketball star to improve race relations both on campus and in the Town of Davidson community.
Charles “Lefty” Driesell along with many of his former players, including Terry Holland ’64, Jerry Kroll ’70, Fred Hetzel ’65 and Dick Snyder ’66, and assistant coaches and support staff will be back on campus for the weekend and honored at halftime of the game against the UNCG Spartans.
