Curry's in the running for, well, everything

Now it's the Oscar Robertson Trophy--Davidson guard Stephen Curry is among 15 finalists for the award, which goes to the U.S. Basketball Writers Association's National Player of the Year. He is also one of 30 mid-season finalists for the Naismith Trophy, the Player of the Year chosen by the Atlanta Tipoff Club.

Combine those with his mid-season candidacy for the Wooden Award (another top player selection) and his being a finalist for the Bob Cousy Award, given annually to the country's best point guard. The Wooden will be presented in Los Angeles in April; the other three at the Final Four in Detroit.

Curry, despite slipping a bit of late, still leads the country in scoring at 28.3 ppg. He's tenth in steals (2.6 pg) and 21st in assists (5.8 pg).--Stan Olson

What a show Stephen put on Wed. night against UNCG! You might think he was subpar due to scoring only 20 pts., but it was a masterful display of shooting, driving, rebounding (10!!), stting screens for his teammates and amazing passing. He is the complete player; it's a shame most of the country knows him only as the Div. 1 leading scorer.

What a treat it has been to watch him this season!
