Ah, yes, the ol' distract-the-free-throw-shooter-with-Speedos routine.

The 12-4 Davidson Wildcats took on the 15-2 Dayton Flyers in North Carolina on Tuesday night, an Atlantic 10 battle that could have conference championship implications down the road.

Davidson students knew it was their job to give their team a true home-court advantage. That's why they busted out the bathing suits:

Davidson legend Stephen Curry, who is having a potential MVP season with the Golden State Warriors, approved of the display:
