Coached by 2008 NABC Coach of the Year Bob McKillop and led by consensus Second Team All-American guard Stephen Curry, the Wildcats completed an undefeated season in the Southern Conference, and reached the 2008 NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament Elite 8, upsetting Gonzaga, Georgetown, and Wisconsin before finally falling to eventual national champion Kansas by a score of 59-57. This marked the first time that Davidson had won a tournament game since the 1969 season, when the Wildcats reached the Elite Eight under then coach Lefty Driesell.
