Davidson's Stephen Curry is scoring 36.4 percent of his team's points, which suggests he's playing keep-away from opponents and teammates alike. But he's also averaging 6.9 assists.
Sometimes it appears that Davidson guard Stephen Curry IS the Wildcats' offense, and the numbers back that up.
Curry has taken almost a third of Davidson's shots so far this season (31.3 percent) and is making more than a third of the team's field goals (34.5 percent). Those numbers would be even higher but for a fluke game against Loyola of Maryland, which used two players to guard him the entire game. He took only three shots and didn't score, but his team won by 30.
Throw that one out (and it deserves to be thrown as far away as possible) and Curry's percentages rise to 33.2 percent of the team's shots taken and 37.7 percent of its field goals.
And because Curry shoots a large number of threes and free throws, his percentage of Davidson's points scored is higher still at 36.4. Again, throw out Loyola and that rises to 41.2 percent.
For comparison, Kyle Singler, Duke's leading scorer, has taken 20.3 percent of the Blue Devils' shots. He's scoring 20.6 percent of Duke's points.
Last season's national player of the year, North Carolina's Tyler Hansbrough, made 24 percent of the Tar Heels' field goals. But because he also made numerous free throws, he scored 25.5 percent of his team's points.
Since Curry as point guard also distributes the ball -- 55 of a team total of 125 assists -- Davidson fans can only hope he doesn't simply wear out.
No sign of that so far; he's averaging 30.8 points and 6.9 assists a game.
