Golden State Warriors star point guard Stephen Curry will be inducted into the Southern Conference Hall of Fame as part of the Class of 2016, according to NBC Sports.
Curry will be honored for his time at Davidson College, now of the Atlantic 10, a program that he helped lead to the Elite Eight in 2008. The two-time NBA MVP scored 2,635 points in three years with the Wildcats and drilled an NCAA record 162 three-pointers in the 2007-08 season. Upon leaving school, he had career marks of 25.3 points and 2.1 steals per game, not to mention shooting 41.2 percent from three-point range.
And Curry has continued his greatness on the NBA level, having led the Warriors to a championship last season and a record 73 regular season wins this year. He also drilled a record 402 three-pointers this season.
Simply put, though the team he played for is no longer part of the SoCon, there’s no doubt about how great Curry was for Davidson before their move.
