Curry league player of week - again

Davidson guard Stephen Curry--I'm sure you guessed it--has been named Southern Conference Player of the Week once more. It's his fifth such honor this season, tying the league record of five--which he set last year. He's been the SC POTW 13 times in his career.

The Wildcats won both their conference games last week, knocking off Elon and Georgia Southern comfortably as Curry averaged 33.5 points and 4.5 assists. His 39 points against Elon marked the 23rd time he has reached 30 in a game.

Curry leads the nation in scoring (29.1 ppg) and the SC in assists (6.5 pg) and steals (3.0 pg). He's in the top ten nationally in all three categories.

Davidson, 14-3 overall and 7-0 in the SC, is home again Wednesday night, meeting Furman at 7 p.m. in Belk Arena.--Stan Olson
