I really liked this article from Sports Illustrated’s Seth Davis on the high number of international players on Davidson’s roster. This year’s Wildcats will feature players from seven different countries-the United States, Finland, Greece, Iceland, Serbia, Nigeria and Sweden. Due to connections established long enough, head coach Bob McKillop has been able to procure top international talent.
“Here are guys from seven different countries, and they’re all getting along as a team focused on the same intent and same purpose, and guided by the same rules,” he marvels. “Isn’t this a model of the way our world should be?”
