Curry helps with Davidson fund raiser

Davidson basketball players past and present helped raise more than $38,000 on Sunday for Nothing But Nets, an organization that provides anti-mosquito bed nets for African families to sleep under.

The Davidson event -- called BUZZKILL and organized by Wildcats guard Bryant Barr -- featured a 3-on-3 tournament for kids, with teams coached by former Davidson star Stephen Curry, as well as Brendan McKillop and senior Will Archambault.

The event also featured online and live auctions, with a trip to the Bay Area and tickets to see Curry's Golden State Warriors bringing $3,200.

Nothing But Nets will send more than 3,800 insecticide-covered bed nets to African villages. BUZZKILL raised more than $16,000 in 2009. -- David Scott
