Coach K Officially Announces Curry

DURHAM, N.C. -- Seth Curry, a 6-3 guard from Charlotte, N.C., will transfer to Duke University, head coach Mike Krzyzewski officially announced on Thursday.

Curry is coming off a freshman season in which he averaged 20.2 points, 4.4 rebounds and 2.3 assists per game while leading Liberty to a 23-12 record and an appearance in the inaugural Tournament. Duke received the required paperwork on Thursday to make the official transfer announcement.

"Seth will be a great addition to our program and the Durham community," said Krzyzewski. "He is a gifted player with a great pedigree. He comes from a beautiful family and we are excited that they will now be a part of the Duke University family."

In Curry's lone season at Liberty, he scored the sixth-most points (707) in a season in Big South history, while leading NCAA freshmen in scoring at 20.2 points per game. Curry, the Big South Freshman of the Year and a second team all-conference selection, also connected on 102 three-point field goals, breaking the Liberty record set last year by Anthony Smith (84).

Curry, the younger brother of Davidson's Stephen Curry, will be eligible to play for the Blue Devils during the 2010-11 season and will have three years of eligibility remaining.
