Seth Curry won’t be in a Duke uniform until October ’10, but every minute of anticipation will be well-worth it for Duke fans. Take a peek at the 18-year-old Big South Freshman of the Year’s work from the past season. The natural 2-guard dropped 26 (four threes) at UVA, 24 (six threes) at Clemson and 22 (three threes) in a win against George Mason. Much like his brother Stephen, a projected 2009 NBA lottery pick, Seth has the uncanny ability to shoot the ball. But Seth also faces some of the same issues as his brother as well. Can he play defense? Is he comfortable taking the ball to the rim? No matter how you twist it, Duke will at least have a dead-eye shooting guard coming off the bench.
Curry will come into 2010 with at least one five-star caliber player in Andre Dawkins and two top-50 true freshmen in Tyler Thornton and Josh Hairston. Despite Duke’s early out in the Tourney, there’s plenty of reason to be positive in Durham.
