Davidson Journal

In the current issue:

Like many Davidson graduates, Michael Kruse ‘00 watched the Wildcats’ Elite Eight run last March, much of it from the stands at Detroit’s Ford Field. In the days that followed, he thought about what he had seen, talked about it with others, and read an Internet post by the Rev. William Robertson ’75 about that final shot in the Kansas game, and about Trust, with a capital T.

Kruse decided to take a risk -- and a three-month leave from his job with the St. Petersburg Times. Many miles and 300 interviews later, he wrote a book about that game, those players, that coach, that season, Davidson College, and Trust -- Taking the Shot: The Davidson Basketball Moment.

What does Bob McKillop have to say about Taking the Shot? “Michael gets it,” said the coach.
