Curry, Curry and more Curry...

While Davidson's Stephen Curry gets plenty of deserved web pub, little brother Seth is getting more and more of his own as a freshman at Liberty. He's averaging 20.7 points so far this season, and could become the first freshman in Big South Conference history to average 20 or more points a game.

The league record for a freshman is 18.1, set by Coastal Carolina's Tony Dunkin (1989-90). Curry is also only 32 points shy of the freshman mark in that category of 466, which belongs to Charleston Southern's Omar Carter and was set last season.

And get this--Carter and Curry were high school teammates, at Charlotte Christian.

"which belongs to Charleston Southern's Omar Gaither and was set last season."

You must mean Omar Carter. Omar Gaither was the Myers Park High School athlete that currently plays for the Philadephia Eagles.

Curry plays in the Southern Conference, not the Big South.

Sorry, just realized younger Curry does play in the Big South.
