If Jack Davidson was a riverboat gambler, he’d be drawing two cards for an inside straight . . . as in 92 straight. That’s as in 92 straight free throws made for Wabash College this season.
Davidson is just two made charity tosses from tying the all-time, all division NCAA mark of 94 consecutive free throws, claimed by Paul Cluxton of Division II Northern Kentucky University in 1997. (Cluxton made 98 in a row over two seasons.)
He’ll get his chance in the regular season finale, at 2 p.m. today, when Wabash hosts Oberlin College.
The 6’1”, 170 pound sophomore guard already wrenched the NCAA Division III record of 66 straight from Delaware Valley’s James Jones (2011), when Davidson stepped to the line, and canned five of five against Hiram College earlier this season.
Since then, he’s gone 25-for-25 over the course of three games.
His streak could also surpass Micheal Williams’ 1993 NBA record of 97 straight.
“I think down the road, [remembering] it will be a really cool thing. It’s actually cool now,” said Davidson.
Question of the Week:

We're departing this week from the usual serious nature of our questions. We just want to know, if it's broken down in five-year segments, what is the best five years ever for music? Whether you like rock, country, gospel or whatever, when do you think the best five-year period was? Maybe it was the Woodstock era? Disco? Heavy metal? Alternative? Let us know!
