Last year's NCAA tournament darling Stephen Curry and his Davidson Wildcats notably failed to qualify for this year's big dance, and just a few days ago were eliminated from the NIT by St. Mary's. His younger brother Seth plays for Liberty, a team that managed to get eliminated from the College Insider.com Tournament post season tournament (if you haven't heard of this thing -don't ask) on the same night that Davidson bit the dust.
While Seth is the younger, and to date less celebrated than his brother, the kid can play -- as he lead all freshman in the nation in scoring at 20.2 points per game.
So, with both teams eliminated from further competition, that should conclude March 2009's coverage of the Curry family and their basketball exploits......except that Seth announced today he's transferring - to seek out higher competition. Clearly Jerry Fallwell cannot be pleased.
Which leads us to a very important note about next year -- if Stephen declares for the NBA draft, and Seth spends the year sitting out because of NCAA transfer rules, we are looking at a Curry-less March. Meaning no puff pieces from the media, no pundits picking their teams as "sleepers" and most importantly, no crowd shots of Mrs. Curry. So too tide you over until then.......
