Stephen Curry: The Sweetest Touch on Sweetest Day

Posted by Bob Biscigliano in ,

Before graduating from Davidson College last spring, for two years I had the distinct privilege of witnessing Stephen Curry drop three-pointers in the eyes of each and every defender that ever attempted to guard the son of former NBA star, Dell Curry. Standing in Coach McKillop's favorite fan section, the D-Block, I jumped up and down countless times while Steph, as everyone knows him around Davidson's campus, knocked down big three pointer after three pointer or made a sick up and under layup. For anyone who doesn't already know, he is the absolute Truth.

Last year he led the smallest D1 school in the nation to within a three pointer from reaching the school's first ever Final Four appearance. What's sweeter than all the success Stephens had in just two years at Davidson, and aside from the fact I know the guy personally, is that Davidson is no longer the lovable underdog. Just the other day, Dick Vitale ranked Davidson 19th amongst his top 40 teams. I can assure you that you can expect at least two more years with Davidson in the top 25. If you don't believe me, ask the alumni guy that Steph claimed this to.

I have to admit, I am a BIT skeptical. The loss of the nation's leading assist man, Jason Richards will surely hurt; moving Steph into a role where he will handle the ball more often. Steph has prospered from working off screens and running around like Rip Hamilton, so it will be interesting to see how this affects his game, and how Coach McKillop adjusts his system. Despite the loss, I don't think much of the results will differ because Steph is still more than capable of making things happen off his own dribble and one ESPN analyst said, "there's no coach in basketball I have more confidence in utilizing a player as gifted as Stephen Curry than Bob McKillop."

As for the team as a whole, there may be a slight hang over from last year's tournament run, but I don't see anything preventing them from making it into the tournament again in 2008-2009. You can bet on it if Curry comes out shooting as hot as he did at Davidson's Midnight Madness 3-Point Shooting contest a few days ago, where he hit 10 threes in a row and 13 of his last 15. You can see the video below. I hope you enjoy one of the sweetest looking shots in the NCAA; fittingly published on the Hallmark Holiday of the year, Sweetest Day. Go Cats!
