Davidson star Stephen Curry will announce Thursday at an 11:30 a.m. on-campus press conference whether he's staying in school for his senior year or going pro.
Here's the weird thing: Davidson coach Bob McKillop still doesn't know what Curry's decision is going to be. And neither do Curry's parents.
"He told us he just wants to sleep on it," Dell Curry, Stephen's father, told me Wednesday night. "But he honestly hasn't told us what he's going to do yet."
Said McKillop Wednesday night: "I don't think Steph knows what he's going to decide right now. His heart is feeling one way. His head is feeling another way. Somehow, he's got to get his heart and his head feeling the same way."
So why schedule a Thursday press conference? The NBA deadline to declare whether you're going pro or not is not until Sunday.
"None of the dynamics are going to change between now and this weekend for him," McKillop said. "Thursday is a convenient day -- I'm in town, he's out of class when we scheduled it, Dell is available and so on. So Steph has given himself a deadline to make this decision."
Dell Curry said he believes that his son actually has all but made the final call -- "Why would you have a press conference otherwise?" he said -- but that Stephen Curry simply doesn't want any more input from anyone.
"I think he's just confident in his decision," Curry said. "He doesn't want to talk to us or run it by us. And we're fine with that."
McKillop, Curry and his father Dell Curry will all participate in Thursday's press conference.
Stephen Curry led the NCAA in scoring with 28.6 points per game this past season and is projected to be an NBA first-round pick if he does go pro. If he returns to Davidson for his senior season, he could finish his college degree and conceivably lead the team back to the NCAA tournament for a run similar to the one it had when Curry was a sophomore.
