Davidson basketball names four captains for 2013-14 season

Two-time Southern Conference tournament MVP De’Mon Brooks leads the quartet of captains into the Wildcats’ final year in the SoCon before moving to the Atlantic 10.

Brooks is joined by Tom Droney, Tyler Kalinoski and Chris Czerapowicz as captains, who were voted upon by the players and coaching staff.

“They have been fortune to have the torch of leadership passed along to them by Nik Cochran, Jake Cohen, JP Kuhlman and Clint Mann,” coach Bob McKillop said in a release. “We are very pleased to have them leading us next year. They are all superb representatives of our program and College.”

Brooks averaged 13.3 points and 6.2 rebounds per game, which were second on the team this past season behind conference player of the year Jake Cohen. 

Czerapowicz has started 41 straight games for the Wildcats, while Droney saw his role increase this past season when sixth man Clint Mann went down with a concussion for the second half of the season.

Kalinoski, a junior, ranked second on the team in made 3-pointers with 55.
