The Devils Made Him Do It
by Jake Petersen
After announcing last week that he intended to transfer from Liberty, freshman sensation Seth Curry decided upon a destination on Sunday, opting to finish out his career as a Blue Devil and play in arguably the toughest conference in America, the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC).
Curry, who averaged 20.2 points per game during his freshman campaign in leading the Flames to 23 victories, released a statement last week saying his decision was, “based on my desire to develop as an athlete to the fullest of my potential and take advantage of new opportunities that may be available to me in a higher rated conference.”
Curry, the younger brother of Davidson star Stephen Curry and son of former NBA player Dell Curry, said, “I am deeply indebted to all of those who have influenced and supported me here – Coach McKay and his staff, my great teammates, my teachers, and my friends.”
“You have given me memories that will last a lifetime, and for that I cannot find words to express my gratitude,” Curry said.
In two games against ACC opponents this season as a Flame, Curry scored 26 points on a Nov. 25 win against the University of Virginia. The Flames nearly pulled off another upset on Dec. 7, against Clemson, a game in which Curry scored 24 points and nailed 6-of-9 three-point attempts.
The sharpshooter will still have three years of eligibility remaining beginning in 2010.
