So how close was Curry?

Davidson guard Stephen Curry, recovering from a sprained left ankle, looked good in early warmups before Wednesday's home game against The Citadel. But when the team came back out a few minutes before tipoff, Curry wasn't with it, the decision finally made to hold him out at least one more game.

Without him, Davidson was, well, terrible, shooting 25.4 percent and making 3 of 23 three-pointers. The Citadel won, 64-46, holding the Wildcats to their lowest point total since 1991.

So how close did Curry come to playing?

"We analyzed how effective he would be," said Davidson coach Bob McKillop. "Offensively, he would have probably gotten shots. Defensively, I think he maybe could have further aggravated it. And we were really concerned what would have happened (Thursday) morning as he woke up after playing 35 minutes on that ankle, in the condition that it was in."

As for Saturday's home game against No.21 Butler, McKillop said, "It's going be a day-by-day thing; he's making great progress. We're thrilled at the progress he's making."

Read that as, it will be a surprise if Curry isn't ready to go.--Stan Olson

Enough Observer. The other day you had bold print in about a 64 font SETH CURRY. So even when Stephan leaves Davidson this lovefest will continue.

We are all tired of hearing and reading about Curry. You folks just don't get the message. It's not bad enough for the Observer to run articles about Curry every day, now we are going to have to go through the same thing with Tiger Woods coming back to play on the PGA tour.

Yeah, you should run more articles about completely forgettable people being inducted into UNCCs Hall of Fame.

I'm going to guess those first two comments came from angry UNCC fans. Get over it.

I'm not tired of reading about him.

I am tired of idiots in comment threads, however.

Those who don't like reading about Curry simply don't appreciate the joy of college athletics.

The second comment posted above has a tint of racism to it.
