Seth Curry will transfer to Duke.

After an official visit to Duke University over the weekend, Liberty freshman Seth Curry has decided to transfer to the institution in Durham, N.C., announced Liberty Head Men's Basketball coach Ritchie McKay on Sunday evening.

"I received a call from Seth today and he told me he decided on transferring to Duke," stated McKay. "My immediate reaction was what a great opportunity for Seth. Duke is a program rich in tradition with not only one of the greatest head coaches of all time, but an impressive staff, as well. I am excited that Seth will be able to fulfill his desires at a place as prestigious and successful as Duke. We have things growing and heading in the right direction here at liberty and we are excited for our future. We are thankful for Seth and the time he spent at Liberty, helping with the foundation of what we are building."

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. Curry helped lead the nation's fourth-youngest team to a 23-12 record and a postseason berth in the Postseason Tournament (CIT). Liberty tallied 20 wins for the first time since 1997.
