Long before he won an NBA title, a league MVP award and he and the Warriors began re-writing the NBA record book, Stephen Curry was a pretty successful player at Davidson College in North Carolina.
On Tuesday, his Wildcats career was honored with his being named to the Southern Conference Hall of Fame.
A first-round draft pick by the Warriors in 2009, Curry left Davidson as a two-time Southern Conference player of the year and is still its all-time leading scorer (2,635 points).
He burst onto the national scene in 2008 when he led the Wildcats into the Elite Eight of the NCAA Tournament, a run that saw 10th-seeded Davidson beat No. 7 Gonzaga, No. 2 Georgetown, and No. 3 Wisconsin. Playing for a Final Fourth berth, Curry and his teammates lost to eventual national champion Kansas, 59-57. Curry averaged 32 points in the four games.
A second-team All-American in his sophomore season, he was a first-team choice in 2009 when he averaged 28.6 points per game.
