“The best decision I ever made was to come to Davidson College and pursue an education, join an amazing community and, most importantly, play for an amazing man who has built this program in Coach [Bob] McKillop,” Curry said.
“To earn this degree you showed determination and perseverance,” Davidson president Doug Hicks said in his speech during the ceremony. “It would have been so easy, so straightforward to not complete your college degree. Yet in response to that idea, you did what you did to 29 other NBA organizations, you said, ‘night, night.’”
Curry earning his degree, also fulfilled a promise that he made to his mother before deciding to enter the 2009 NBA draft.
