Turns out Stephen Curry isn't the only Davidson sharpshooter who can bury a clutch 3-pointer.
Check out this video of Davidson's Brendan McKillop and Steve Rossiter hitting back-to-back threes in the final three seconds of double overtime overtime to lift the Wildcats to a 99-96 victory over Elon on Saturday night.
With Davidson trailing 96-93 and just a few ticks remaining in double overtime, guard Nik Cochran chased down an offensive rebound in the corner and kicked out to McKillop, who knocked down a right-wing 3-pointer with 1.9 seconds remaining. Then Rossiter stepped in front of Adam Constantine's inbounds pass and sunk a one-handed, off-balance 3-pointer as he was falling out of bounds to give the Wildcats an improbable victory.
"That play where we look to steal from the point guard is something we work on," Rossiter said on Davidson's post-game radio show. "At that point in the game, I figured their big men was going to try to get it out to their point guard. I just looked for the point guard, and luckily the ball came to me."
Whereas Davidson had been one of the premier mid-major programs in the country with Curry, its first season without him has been challenging. The Wildcats (16-14, 11-7) started 2-7 but have fared better in conference play, winning seven of their last 11 games to claim third place in the heading into next week's Southern Conference tournament.
Davidson had to claw back from a 14-point deficit with 8:27 left in regulation just to pave the way for the heroics from Rossiter and McKillop. J.P. Kuhlman hit a pair of 3-pointers in the final 27 seconds of regulation, rallying Davidson from six down to force the first overtime period.
"We were talking in the locker room how this whole season has been up and down, and we decided we just have to keep fighting for the memories," McKillop said. "Tonight's a definite example of that. We're never going to forget a game like this. We were talking about how this game compared to even the Georgetown and Gonzaga games two years ago. None of us have ever been a part of a game like this."
