DAVIDSON, N.C. (AP) — Stephen Curry is on the other side of the country as Davidson prepares for one of the toughest tasks in college basketball: replacing a superstar.
The Wildcats open the season Saturday at No. 11 Butler without their all-time leading scorer. The sweet-shooting Curry left the Wildcats after his junior year and was the No. 7 overall pick by the Golden State Warriors.
Coach Bob McKillop has no returning player who averaged in double figures as he begins his 21st season at the school. But McKillop is eager to teach and Curry thinks the Wildcats can still be successful.
