NBA projection
In April, Curry underwent surgery to repair the right lower leg injury that plagued him all season. The surgery forced him to miss individual workouts and combines in the weeks heading up to the NBA Draft, but he’s still going to get strong consideration for the second round because of his family history. He has the same game-breaking shooting ability as father Dell and brother Stephen, both NBA stars.

2012-13 Season
Despite a painful injury to his lower right leg that forced him to skip practice and play only in games, Curry put together a first-team All-ACC season, finishing second in the league in scoring and reaching double figures in 29 games, including 18 of 20 points or more. Curry was second in the ACC in 3-point field-goal percentage and 3-pointers made per game (2.7).

Key statistics
17.5 ppg | 2.5 rpg | 1.5 apg | 1.2 tpg | 0.8 spg | 32.3 mpg | .465 FG | .438 3PT | .809 FT

Cool statistic
Curry, who played his freshman season at Liberty, and older brother Stephen are the highest scoring brother act in NCAA history, combining for 4,736 points. Seth scored 2,101 career points, including 1,394 at Duke, and Stephen, currently a star for the Golden State Warriors, finished his career at Davidson with 2,635 in just three seasons.

What Insiders Say
Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski
“Seth showed tremendous toughness, both mental and physical, this season while playing through the injury. He had an amazing season even though he was held out of a majority of our practices.”

What Outsiders Say
Michigan State coach Tom Izzo
“Curry hurt us [after scoring 29 points against the Spartans in the NCAA Sweet 16], no question about it, and that's why he's a great player. … I thought Curry did a great job of coming off those screens. He stops, he pops.”
