Sunday, March 29, 2009. (AP) -- Seth Curry is joining Coach K and the Blue Devils.
Curry's father Dell told The Associated Press on Sunday night that his son will transfer to Duke next season.
The younger brother of Davidson star Stephen Curry was the Big South freshman of the year at Liberty after leading the nation's first-year players with a 20.2-point average. He announced plans last week to transfer so that he could play a higher level of competition.
Seth Curry will sit out next season and have three seasons of eligibility remaining beginning in 2010-11, when the Blue Devils will need another scoring guard. Gerald Henderson and Jon Scheyer will be seniors next season.
Dell Curry, a former NBA sharpshooter, said "Coach K kept telling him the timing couldn't be better."
