Mike DeCourcy: Stephen Curry has done just about everything a college player can do in less than two-and-a-half seasons, but this will be his first chance to play at Madison Square Garden. Davidson and West Virginia are the opening act for this year’s Jimmy V, which means defensive ace Bob Huggins will have to devise some way to stop Curry that doesn’t, say, lead to his team being defeated by 30.

It’s possible he’s not getting enough acclaim for what he has accomplished so far this season. Curry is averaging 31.3 points in spite of the scoreless night he endured against Loyola’s constant double-team. In both games this year against major-conference opponents, he scored 44.

Oh, and by the way, he also is averaging 6.4 assists and shooting better than 50 percent from the field. He deserves this stage.
