Curry is SoCon player of week -- again

If this keeps up, the Southern Conference may need to retire its Player of the Week award and present it permanently to Stephen Curry.

Curry, Davidson's junior guard, has won the award for the fourth time this season and 12th time in his career after leading the Wildcats to two victories last week.

Davidson (8-1) beat West Virginia and Chattanooga as Curry averaged 34 points, eight assists and 2.5 steals. He continues to lead the nation in scoring at 31.9 and is 11th in assists at 6.8. In the win over Chattanooga Saturday, he scored 41 points, including a school- record 31 in the second half.

The Wildcats next play Saturday at 4 p.m., meeting Purdue in the Wooden Tradition at Conseco Fieldhouse in Indianapolis. The game will be televised by CBS.
