DAVIDSON, N.C. -- On the heels of earning his fourth Southern Conference Player of the Week honor, Stephen Curry of the Davidson men’s basketball team has been named the league’s Player of the Month for the month of November as announced by the conference office Tuesday afternoon.

For the opening month of the 2007-08 campaign, Curry averaged 26.0 points, 4.2 rebounds, 4.6 treys and 2.2 steals per outing, while connecting on 50.0 percent (47-94) of his attempts from the floor and draining 23-of-55 (41.8 percent) from behind the three-point arc.

The 6-3 shooting guard from Charlotte, N.C., hit the 20-point plateau four times, including a game-high 24 points in the Wildcats’ near upset of top-ranked North Carolina at Bobcats Arena, Nov. 14.

In the Wildcats’ triumph over Appalachian State Monday, Nov. 26 in both teams’ SoCon opener, the sophomore scored a career-high 38 points, 26 of which came in the opening period. Curry set a Holmes Center scoring record and added six rebounds and four steals. He also tied his own school mark for treys in a contest with nine.

The Preseason Southern Conference Player of the Year has hit double figures in 33 consecutive contests and 39-of-40.

A year ago, Curry won the monthy honor three times (November, February and March).

Curry currently ranks fifth nationally in scoring at 25.0 points per contest.
