Seth Curry, who led the nation's fourth-youngest team in scoring at 20.2 points per game, has decided to transfer.

Liberty Head Coach Ritchie McKay has announced that freshman guard Seth Curry will transfer at the conclusion of the spring semester.

"There is a level of disappointment with Seth's decision," commented McKay. "I always have a vested interest in God's will or purpose for the lives of the people we come in contact with. Seth has meant a lot to our basketball program and has added value to our campus. I have nothing but great respect for the Curry family and we wish them success in all their future pursuits.

"I don't fault Seth for his decision to pursue a school in a higher profile conference, at the same time I am really excited with what God is doing in our program and I know Liberty basketball will continue to prosper."

In Curry's (Charlotte, N.C.) lone season at Liberty he tallied the sixth most points (707) in a season in Big South history, while leading the nation's freshmen in scoring (20.2). Curry connected on 102 three-point field goals on the year, breaking the Liberty record set last year by Anthony Smith (84). Curry was named Big South Freshman of the Year, as well as earning second team all-conference honors.

Prepared Statement From Seth Curry – March 24, 2009
Today I am announcing that I will not be returning to Liberty for my sophomore year. This is a difficult decision that I have reached after close consultation with my family and others close to me, and it is 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.

My freshman year at Liberty has been an incredible experience. It has been a time of learning, growth and discovery of my potential as a person, a student and an athlete. For that 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.

Thank you,
