Player Bio

Wardell Stephen "Steph" Curry II was born in Akron, Ohio, to Sonya and Dell Curry. His mother was a volleyball player at Virginia Tech and his father played in the NBA for the Jazz, Cavaliers, Hornets, Bucks and Raptors. As children, Stephen and his brother Seth -- who also plays in the NBA -- would often attend games and shoot with the Hornets (where Dell spent most of his career) during warmups. Following his father's retirement, Stephen and his family settled in North Carolina. There, Stephen attended Charlotte Christian School, where he was named all-conference and all-state and led his team to three conference titles and three state playoff appearances. Since 2014, Curry has hosted the SC30 Select Camp, inviting 20 top high school prospects for a four-day, hands-on training session. He and his wife set up the Eat. Learn. Play Foundation, a family-founded charity "committed to unlocking the amazing potential of every child by fighting to end childhood hunger and ensuring children have access to nutritious food, establishing that students have access to a quality education, and the resources to succeed, and providing opportunities and safe places for all children to play and be active." Curry has been a champion of the United Nations Foundation's Nothing But Nets campaign since his college days at Davidson; since 2014, he has donated three insecticide-treated mosquito nets for every three-pointer he makes to help combat malaria. In July of 2013, Curry traveled to Tanzania with a group from Nothing But Nets and helped distribute 38,000 bed nets to families at the Nyarugusu Refugee Camp. He also met President Barack Obama after giving a speech at the White House in support of the President's Malaria initiative in February 2015.

The 6-foot-3 guard started 33 games as a freshman and was a scoring sensation. He led the team with 21.5 points and hit 40.8 percent of his three-point attempts. The Wildcats made the NCAA Tournament and Curry put a scare into Maryland by scoring 30 points. Curry's sophomore campaign made him a national figure. He led the SoCon in scoring for the second straight season with 25.9 points per contest, and the team did not lose in conference play. Curry brought Davidson back in its first-round game against Gonzaga with 30 second-half points and totaled 40 in the game. He scored 30 and 33 in the two games against Georgetown and Wisconsin before the exciting run ended against Kansas. The guard led the nation in scoring as a junior with 28.6 points and added 5.6 assists and 2.5 steals. He scored 25 points in seven straight games and scored 44 points twice. The Wildcats were defeated by College of Charleston in the SoCon tournament. Curry was named a consensus First Team All-American and declared for the 2009 NBA Draft with one season of eligibility remaining. He was chosen with the seventh overall pick by the Golden State Warriors.
