Seth Curry Shoots Lights Out for Duke
Is there room for another Curry brother to capture our hearts this year? Maybe if he were wearing a different uniform. In case you forgot about him because of his year off or in case you didn’t know about him, let this post serve as your official notice: it’s time to pay attention to Seth Curry.
Curry is the younger brother of Steph Curry, the baby-faced scoring machine who led Davidson to the Elite 8 in 2008 while averaging nearly 26 points per game. Both young men are the son of Del Curry, the former NBA veteran, first-round pick, and one-time NBA leader in three-point shooting percentage. Maybe we could get some genetics doctor to test the family’s DNA because it sure seems like the sharpshooting gene has been passed down to the sons.
Seth Curry is a sophomore at Duke, playing his first season for the Blue Devils. He spent his freshman season averaging 20.2 points per game for Liberty before deciding to transfer, forcing him to sit out last season. Curry has already proven that the year off was worth the wait for Blue Devils fans.
In his first game against Princeton Sunday, Seth scored 14 points making 3 of 5 threes. In his second game on Tuesday, he poured in 17 points making 3 of 4 threes. Curry is shooting 66% from beyond the arc on the young season and he’s a perfect 9-for-9 at the free throw line. The defending champs are loaded once again, and that includes Curry who will be their outside shooting threat the entire season. Too bad he chose to play for Duke because those Curry kids are pretty darn likable otherwise.
