Stephen Curry Hits Beast-Mode

It’s possible Davidson guard Stephen Curry might already be the NCAA’s Most Outstanding Player—and we’re only halfway through the tournament. Curry’s averaged over 34 points over three games so far, an offensive output unheard of since Glenn “Big Dog” Robinson averaged slightly more than 36 in 1994. He’s making the other supposed stars out there look pedestrian in comparison. Let’s compare:

-- Tyler Hansbrough has averaged just under 19 points, 1.3 assists, and 8.3 rebounds.

-- Kevin Love is averaging just under 23 points, 11 rebounds, and 5 blocks.

-- Derrick Rose, star guard for Memphis, has scored 20 points a game, dished out 5 assists and grabbed 6 rebounds.

-- Stephen Curry has averaged 34 points, 3.6 assists and 3 rebounds.

Even Lebron James is an enthusiastic witness to Curry’s brilliance. Versus Big Ten Champ Wisconsin, Curry brought King James to his feet, arms raised in the air, when he torched the Badgers for yet another three late in the second half. Flattering? Try transcendent. Said the cool Curry, “It’s very cool for him to be here.”

Speaking of “witnesses,” someone left a box full of red t-shirts in Davidson’s hotel room this weekend. They read WITNESS on the front, and DAVIDSON on the back.

Keep an eye on Stephen Curry (our new man crush!) tonight as he takes on Kansas.
