February 18, 2019
Wabash College sophomore guard Jack Davidson broke the NCAA all-time, all-divisions record for consecutive free throws made Saturday, moving his streak to 95 before missing for the first time in his last 14 games played.
Davidson broke the all-time record held by Paul Cluxton from Northern Kentucky University (DII) of 94 set in the 1996-1997 season. The NCAA Division I record is 85 held by Darnell Archey of Butler University. Davidson already broke the NCAA Division III record of 84 held by Dirk Rhinehart from Kalamazoo College set over the course of the 2000-2001 and 2001-2002 seasons. Davidson also moved past Chad Tabor for the most free throws made in a season by a Wabash player, making his 185th of the year as part of a 10-of-12 effort from the stripe in an 89-76 win versus Oberlin. Davidson is 185-of-199 from the line for the season and ranked second in free throw percentage and third in total free throws made in Division III heading into Saturday's game versus Oberlin.
