Stephen Curry is The Man


Davidson 74 Georgetown 70


It would have been nice if CBS had allowed us to see Davidson come from 17 down in the second half. You would think that CBS would dedicate the four feeds to each game site and let those of us who have digital cable decide for ourselves which game we would like to see. Yea, I know I could have gotten of my rear and gone to the computer to watch it, but I guess I'm too lazy...
From what Packer and Nance were saying, Curry put on a heck of a show in the 2nd half after being held to 5 in the first half. He finished with 30, giving him 70 for the weekend... wonder when the last time something like that happened.


In Ken's previous post he asked Is The ACC Really This Weak?. ACC schools cannot miss on players like Curry if they are going to claim dominance. Imagine this. You have a mediocre basketball program at best. Your school's all-time greatest player has a son graduating from high school who happens to hit 48% of his 3 pointers and you ask him to walk-on for his freshman year. Congratulations Seth Greenberg you are living that reality as you battle in the NIT.

I've got to say that assuming they are actually controlling what goes into the time warner HD Feeds, WRAL has really screwed up the way they have handled things. For the 1st 2 days things were as planned, with one feed per site. The problem was, there were intermittent signal problems/hangs of the images which would randomly pop up and last a few seconds. Unsure whether this was a WRAL or a Time-Warner issue. Those problems have cleared up, but today the feeds jerked you around randomly way too often. There was no way to stay with the Davidson game when you wanted. I ended up turning to ncaa.com online feeds. My guess is that those with DirectTV packages had better luck actually watching what they wanted.

What I haven't been able to find is a good place to talk to WRAL about these types of problems. They have a million blogs, do they have one to address things liek this?

Just to clear up some facts from your lack of research... Tech had only 2 schollies available in 2006 and they were both taken early. Seth Greenberg offered Curry a schollie if he would walk-on his first year and redshirt behind Jamon Gordon and Zabian Dowdell (which is more than any other major conference school offered). Besides, it's not like his dad couldnt' afford to pay the tuition for one year (besides Stephen is a bit light and could have used the year to put on a little weight... he was 5-11 and 140 during his senior year). Curry didn't want to sit a year and decided to play at Davidson who was glad to get him and would start him as soon as he walked on campus. I for one am extreemely happy for the kid and look forward to many more exciting games. Sure, I would have loved to have him play at Tech, but sometimes things dont' work out like you want... like the fact that one of the recruits who took the 2 schollies for Tech that year didn't qualify and won't ever play at Tech. Turns out Stephen could have played his freshman year...

Thanks, that is great info. The word on the street was of course that Greenberg ("uncle fester" as he's lovingly known to UVA fans) didn't want him. This new info makes much more sense.

Thanks for the additional info...

I think everyone who doesn't have to play Davidson is looking forward to many more exciting games from him and I'm sure there are about 12 ACC teams kicking themselves for not giving him a more serious look. He sure as heck would have made a difference for the Pack this year.

By the way, who was the recruit that didn't quailfy?
