Seth Curry, the high-scoring younger brother of Davidson star Stephen Curry, says he is transferring out of Liberty to seek a higher level of competition.
Curry, 6-foot-3 and 180 pounds, led the nation's freshman with a
20.2 scoring average.
Liberty went 23-12 this season, finishing with an 88-65 loss to
James Madison on Monday night in the CollegeInsider.com tournament.
Curry scored eight points in the loss.
"This is a difficult decision that I have reached after close
consultation with my family and others close to me," he said in a
statement released through the school. He said the decision "is
based on my desire to develop as an athlete to the fullest of my
potential and take advantage of new opportunities that may be
available to me in a higher rated conference."
