Davidson edges Elon 99-96 in double overtime
ELON, N.C. (AP)—Davidson’s Brendan McKillop and Steve Rossiter hit 3-pointers in the last 3 seconds of a double-overtime win over Elon on Saturday night in the regular-season finale for both teams.
The Wildcats (16-14, 11-7 Southern Conference), who overcame a 14-point second-half deficit, trailed by three with 14 seconds left in the second overtime period. McKillop tied the game at 96 and Rossiter knocked down the game-winner 2 seconds later after Elon’s Adam Constantine turned the ball over.
McKillop and Jake Cohen scored a career-high 24 points, while J.P. Kuhlman’s 24 matched his career-high.
Davidson won its 15th straight against Elon (8-22, 5-13), whose first-year coach Matt Matheny was an assistant for 16 years with the Wildcats.
Davison opens tournament play March 5 and will play a first-round game for the first time since 2001.
Drew Spradlin led Elon with 25 points.
