College BBall Quick Hits 12/7

Seth Curry and his Liberty Flames played their second game in a row today, losing to Clemson 80-75. Curry had 24, 4 and 1, and shot 9-16 from the field (6-9) from three.

Liberty, a small school founded by Jerry Falwell in his hometown of Lynchburg, VA, has a pretty brutal travel schedule. Yesterday, the played at home in VA, then traveled to Clemson today. Their next game is the 15th at home, then they travel to DePaul on the 17th, St. Louis on the 19th and out to Northern Colorado on the 22nd.

Meanwhile, Seth's older brother Stephen leads the country in scoring with 31.3 ppg. Looking at his stats, I had to give props to Eric Maynor at VCU. These two small college guards are definitely 2 of the top 10 guards in the nation, if not top five. Check out their numbers:

Curry - 7 games, 31.3 ppg, 2.7 rpg, 6.4 apg, 3 spg, 50% fg, 41% 3pt, 88% ft
Maynor - 8 games, 23.9 ppg, 3.8 rpg, 6.0 apg, 1.5 spg, 53% fg, 44% 3pt, 73% ft

And just for the heck of it, here are Blake Griffin's numbers after seven. (At lunch Friday, we figured out that Griffin has Amare's athleticism with Duncan's fundamentals. He HAS to be the #1 pick in this year's draft.)

Griffin - 7 games, 25.6 ppg, 17.3 rpg, 2.7 agp, 2.0 spg, .9 bpg, 68% fg, 62% ft and he's 3-3 from downtown so far.
