Blackhawk Christian honors late basketball coach with Marc Davidson Court

November 30, 2022


Blackhawk Christian School is honoring the legacy of late boys basketball coach Marc Davidson by dedicating its basketball floor to him ahead of the season opener November 29 against North Side.

Marc Davidson Court now adorns the gym floor at Blackhawk Christian. Along with it, a quote from Colossians 3:23: "Work heartily, as for the Lord."

Davidson's widow, Lisa, their children, and Marc's father, Don, were on hand for an emotional ceremony before tipoff of the varsity game between the Braves and the Legends. Don spoke at center court before leading the entire gymnasium in prayer, likened to what Marc--who died May 9 from cancer at age 49--did at the end of each game in what would be his final season as Blackhawk Christian head coach. A pre-recorded audio clip from Marc's brother was also played over the public address system.

North Side players, coaches and administrators presented the Blackhawk Christian team with bracelets commemorating the court dedication and ensuing game.  The Braves would win 71-62. Marc's son, Jimmy, scoring the first points on the newly-minted Marc Davidson Court.
