Davidson College has raised $1 million for a new scholarship honoring the late Wildcat All American Mike Maloy, and picked current player De’Mon Brooks as the scholarship’s first winner.
Maloy, who led Davidson to appearances in the NCAA Elite Eight in 1968 and 1969, died in April 2009 in Austria, where he had lived for years.
Brooks is a Charlotte native who starred at Hopewell High School before coming to Davidson. He’s a rising junior who was voted Southern Conference Player of the Year last season.
