Seth Curry: ‘Proud to call myself a Blue Devil for the rest of my life’

Seth’s older brother, Stephen, has been receiving all the attention lately, and deservedly so considering how he’s dazzled the nation’s eyes in Golden State’s 4-2 first round series win against the Denver Nuggets in the NBA playoffs. But, Seth enjoyed his time in the limelight for much of the college basketball season as he averaged 17.5 points and shot 43.8% from 3PT land for Duke.

Last week, Seth was honored at the 2013 Duke Basketball Banquet, and received some very complimentary remarks from head coach Mike Krzyzewski. While introducing the younger Curry to the podium,¬†Krzyzewski said: “Thanks for letting me correct the mistake I made of not taking you right out of high school.”

Seth, like his older brother, was seldom recruited coming out of high school, and committed to Liberty University in September of 2007. After averaging 20.2 points as a freshman in the Big South Conference, it was clear Curry was playing at a level or two beneath his abilities. As such, he transferred to Duke following his freshman season at Liberty. As a senior, Curry was Duke’s steadiest and most reliable offensive player.

Even with the returning and incoming talent that Duke has for the 2013-14 season, the shooting prowess of Curry will be difficult to replace. In his three seasons at Duke, Curry shot 41.9% from 3PT, which ranks third all-time only behind Christian Laettner and Trajan Langdon.

    Dukies are once a generation players in the NBA. Jeff Mullin, Johnny Dawkins and Grant Hill were good. The 1yr guys Maggette,Deng,Boozer(year & a half) are decent players but most Duke players never live up to their collegiate hype.

      Booz played 3 years at Duke along with Jayson Williams, both graduated early. Also, Duke has more starters in the NBA than any other school.

        Kyrie Irving is the future

      Deng, Boozer are not once a year players. They make a difference on their teams all because of where they come from

    Boozer was hurt during a large portion of his time at Duke. Kyrie played about 15 games for Duke. You guys make the point for me.
