Take a look at the college basketball stats and records of Stephen Curry
Stephen Curry needs no introduction to what he has done in the NBA in the past decade. But before Curry went on to become the number one 3-point shooter in the league’s history, just like any other young talent he had a notable college career as well.
Curry’s father Dell Curry is also a former NBA player but despite having the such rich sporting background, Curry was not very highly touted by most of the colleges around the USA. The reason for the same is his physical appearance. The Warriors’ player did not have an amazing physique and which became the reason for his underappreciation by colleges.
However, the coach of Davidson college had been keeping a close eye on his High School career and was very impressed by his abilities. Curry played college basketball for three seasons at Davidson, with that being said, let’s take a look at his college stats and also records.
