#52. Kellan Grady and the Curry Connection

Back in 2008, a young Kellan Grady watched Stephen Curry lead Davidson on a magical Elite Eight run and instantly idolized the prolific shooter, following his career as it moved to the NBA. Fast-forward 10 years, and Grady is a Wildcat himself, coming off a freshman season that would make his idol proud. Grady averaged 18 points on 50.1% shooting, making 37.2% of his threes to help lead Davidson to the NCAA tournament. His first collegiate game ever saw him drain seven of 10 three-point attempts, and he topped 30 points three times, including a 39-point effort in a triple-overtime win over St. Bonaventure. Grady wasn’t even the Wildcats’ leading scorer last season—that honor went to Peyton Aldridge and his 21.2 ppg average—but this year it’s his show. Can he keep following in Curry’s footsteps and bring more magic to Davidson? —MG

St. Bonnie game was a loss. Writer says it was a win.

It felt like a win, though.

If the refs had not called that 5th foul (that was not a foul) on Peyton, it would have been a win.

Bad showing by SI as major sports info source. Sloppy reporting is worse than "fake news."

It's not good, but it's not really news. It's more like commentary.

When you are the business of writing, any error of fact -- not to mention grammar or spelling -- is a bad error, whether news or commentary.

Me neither. Bonnies fans might disagree...

I concur that from an editorial perspective, this error of fact is, at best, highly embarrassing. Nonetheless, from our vantage point in Camelot, it is merely amusing, somewhat reassuring actually, in that we have created a mindset in the media of a total winner.


Accordingly, that terrific game against the Bonnies last year is old news indeed - new year, new team as is true for the brownies as well. They have become a major Cats rival, so I want to see this article as prophesy, not history.

I saw at least twelve reasons to be excited about the season tonight, having seen most of the team at an event, and perhaps more were there and I didn't see them in the crowd.

That’s about right. 12 of them are tall enough to stand out in a crowd. The rest are roughly average height.
