Of Hoops and Humility

Davidson College basketball star Stephen Curry is a humble guy on campus, probably because of his Christian faith. But USA Today doesn't tell you that.

USA Today has a nice story today on Stephen Curry, who wowed the nation in March by taking tiny Davidson College to the Elite Eight of the NCAA basketball tournament.

The piece, titled "Just a regular man on campus," not only recounts Curry's amazing run in the NCAAs, when he averaged 32 points per game, but also notes that "success hasn't spoiled him" and that "he's an unassuming 20-year-old in oversized sweathshirts and jeans known for getting involved in campus activities."

All well and good, but what the story fails to mention is that Curry comes from a strong Christian home, attended a Christian high school, and has a vibrant faith himself – the likely reason he's such a humble young man who is always finding ways to help out his fellow collegians.

Read more about Curry's faith in this recent story from Sports Illustrated.
