DAVIDSON, N.C. – Luka Brajkovic, Michael Jones and Foster Loyer have been selected as team captains for the 2021-22 Davidson men’s basketball season, as announced by head coach Bob McKillop Monday.

“Leadership is always a vital component of a team’s success,” said McKillop, who is in his 33rd season at the helm of the Wildcats. “I am thrilled that Luka, Mike and Foster will have that responsibility.”

A preseason all-conference selection, Brajkovic contributed 10.9 points and 6.0 rebounds per game a year ago, while shooting 53.6 percent from the floor, which ranked sixth among league leaders.

For his career, the 6-10 senior forward has started 84 of the 85 games he’s appeared, recording 50 double-figure performances and 10 double-doubles.

As a redshirt sophomore, Jones played in 22 contests, contributing 5.1 points, 1.8 rebounds and 1.2 assists per outing. He recorded double figures three times, including 11 points against Vanderbilt and NC State.

Loyer, who served as a team captain last season for Michigan State as a junior before transferring to Davidson, appeared in 19 games for the Spartans, setting career-highs in points, rebounds, assists and minutes played.

“They have consistently demonstrated an impressive capacity to first lead themselves. This will then clearly serve as a catalyst for them to lead our entire team,” McKillop commented.
