Curry held out of practice

Davidson junior guard Stephen Curry was held out of full practice work for a second straight day this evening after spraining his left ankle in Saturday's game at Furman. No decision has been made on whether He will play in Wednesday's home game with The Citadel in Belk Arena.

"We're getting close," said Davidson coach Bob McKillop. "It will be a game-time decision."

Curry did go through an individual workout, another step forward. He shot free throws in Monday's practice.

Should Curry not be able to go, McKillop would likely either start backup point guard Brendan McKillop or move off-guard Max Paulhus Gosselin to the point and put sixth man Will Archambault in the starting lineup.

Curry is an all-American who leads the nation in scoring at 29 points a game.
