Davidson Head Coach Bob McKillop earned his 600th win tonight with the Wildcats victory over Duquesne.


PITTSBURGH, Pa. – Now in his 32nd season at the helm, head coach Bob McKillop picked up his 600th career win Tuesday evening as Davidson defeated Duquesne, 61-48, in Atlantic 10 men’s basketball action at the Kerr Fitness Sport Center.

A CBS Sport graphic shows the elite company of active-NCAA coaches with 600 wins at same school.

In addition to becoming the 40th (15th active) head coach with at least 600 wins at the Division I level, McKillop is currently 17th on the active wins list behind Mark Few (609) and Jay Wright (601).

The senior backcourt of Kellan Grady and Carter Collins paced the ‘Cats with 13 points each, while sophomore Hyunjung Lee added 12.

Freshman Grant Huffman also gave Davidson (6-4, 2-1 A-10) a big lift off the bench with seven points in a season-high 19 minutes.

Despite starting just 3-of-19 from the floor and trailing by as many as 12 midway through the opening half, Davidson closed the final 6:49 of the period on a 13-2 spurt to cut the deficit to 26-25 at the break.

After Michael Hughes’ 3-pointer put the Dukes back in front 33-31 with 13:30 to play, Davidson responded with an 11-0 run, capped by a Huffman reverse layup to grab control.

Marcus Weathers was the lone Duquesne (2-3, 1-2 A-10) player in double figures with 12 points.

For the ninth time in 10 outings, Davidson controlled the glass, finishing with a 43-36 advantage on the boards.
