    Well he said Curry's increased interest in communicating and leading the team, along with his efforts on the court and in practice led to his being named captain. Good job Curry and keep up the good work.

    I thought Captain's were named at the beginning of the season? I'm just wondering why now? I'm pretty sure K knows what he is doing?

    My question as well. Seems like a recipe for disaster to me.

    We are obsessed with dook because we would like to "Curry" favor with the dook fans. (see what I did there)

    2 comments so far on Curry being named tri-captain. Any other of you "non-obsessed with Duke" UNC fans want to add to the fun?

    Question is...why was Kiwi throwing Curry under the bus up until now?

    What about this story are they not telling us?

    Does Curry get to take a "shopping trip" to K Jewelers now, too, like Lance "Bling" Thomas got?

    How much does it mean to be a captain if 3 of the five players are captains? Why not just make everybody a captain? Just saying.

    http://www.digtriad.com/sports/article/261411/13/Curry-Joins-Plumlee--Kelly-As-Duke-Team-Captain-DURHAM, N.C. - Senior Seth Curry has been named team captain, joining fellow classmates Ryan Kelly and Mason Plumlee, head coach Mike Krzyzewski announced on Tuesday.

    Curry is averaging 17.1 points, while shooting 50.0 percent (60-of-120) from the field and 41.9 percent (26-of-62) from three-point range on the season for the top-ranked Duke Blue Devils (12-0).

    "It is a great honor to be named captain," said Curry. "I have been trying to lead all year, so it is great to have Coach K honor me by putting that label next to my name along with Ryan and Mason."

    Curry, a third team All-ACC selection last season, has five games with 20 or more points scoring, including a 31-point outburst in last Saturday's win Santa Clara.

    He ranks among the ACC leaders in scoring (3rd, 17.1 ppg.), field goal percentage (9th, .500), free throw percentage (5th, .824), three-point percentage (4th, .419) and three-point field goals (t-2nd, 2.4 3pg.).

    The Charlotte, N.C., native is 30 points shy of becoming the 62nd player in Duke history to top the 1,000-point mark. Including his one season at Liberty, Curry has scored 1,677 career points. He and his brother, Stephen, rank fourth in NCAA history in scoring by a brother tandem with 4,312 points combined.

    "Our three seniors have really been the leaders of our team," said Krzyzewski. "From the spring Ryan and Mason were named co-captains but Seth has been one of the leaders since then. It seems only natural that all three of them should be tri-captains. It is an honor and we are really happy to make it official."

    Curry and the Blue Devils return to action on Wednesday, Jan. 2 with a game against Davidson at Time Warner Arena in Charlotte. Tip-off is slated for 7:00 p.m.
