Steph Curry turns ankle; should be OK for Duke

Davidson star guard Stephen Curry rolled his ankle late in the second half of Davidson's 76-55 home win over Samford Saturday, causing a collective gasp from the crowd as he hobbled off the court in obvious pain.

Afterward, however, both Curry and Davidson coach Bob McKillop said the injury appeared to be nothing serious and shouldn't hamper him much if at all in Davidson's next game -- a fierce road test Wednesday at Duke.

Curry, a junior, did score his 2,000th career point in the game -- only the third Davidson player ever to do so. He had a relatively quiet 21 points against overmatched Samford, mostly deferring to teammates. He also had eight assists.

I'm on an all-Curry, all-the-time mission today, going to Steph's game at 2 p.m. and then younger brother Seth's game at 7 p.m. Seth is the starting point guard for Liberty, which plays at Winthrop tonight. Look for a full story on what transpires in Sunday's Observer.
