Curry can make case for All-America

Stephen Curry's 41-point effort against UNC Greensboro all but wrapped up the Southern Conference Player of the Year award for the Davidson sophomore, but there might be a bigger honor coming for Curry.

Davidson hasn't had a player named to the AP All-America first, second or third team since 1970, but Curry has a strong chance of getting selected this season. He's already been named to as a Wooden and Naismith Award final Top 30 lists, and he's currently ranked No.7 among all players on the Wooden Award list.

Curry shrugs off such talk, but AP voters from across the country will get two chances to see him make his case on the court next week. Davidson's home game against UNC Greensboro Tuesday and the Wildcats' road game at Winthrop Friday will both be on ESPN2.
