DURHAM, N.C. – Seth Curry, a 2013 Sporting News second team All-America, underwent surgery Monday on the right lower extremity injury that he played on throughout the 2012-13 season. The Charlotte, N.C., native averaged a team-high 17.5 points per game while shooting 43.8 percent (95-of-217) from three-point range despite being limited in practice with the injury.

“Seth showed tremendous toughness, both mental and physical, this season while playing through the injury,” said head coach Mike Krzyzewski. “He had an amazing season even though he was held out of a majority of our practices. This surgery will further stabilize the leg and help the healing process as Seth prepares for a bright professional career.”

The surgery was successfully performed at the Duke University Medical Center by Dr. Robert Zura and assisted by Dr. Claude T. Moorman. Curry is expected to be sidelined 10-12 weeks.

A first team All-ACC selection by the coaches, Curry finished second in the ACC in scoring, while reaching double figures 29 times with a team-high 18 20-point efforts. He also ranked among the conference leaders in three-point field goals (2nd, 2.7 3pg), three-point percentage (2nd, .434) and free throw percentage (6th, .809). Curry, a two-time ACC Player of the Week, made 95 three-point field goals, tied for ninth-most in a season at Duke.

Curry closed his Duke career with 1,394 points, while also ranking third in the Duke record books in three-point field goal percentage (.420, 223-of-531), fifth in free throw percentage (.825, 293-of-355) and eighth with 223 made three-pointers. He became the 12th Duke player with 200 career three-point field goals and just the fifth to do it within his first three years.

Curry, who played his freshman season at Liberty, and his older brother, Stephen, became the NCAA’s highest scoring brother tandem in 2012-13. The duo combined for 4,736 points during their college careers. Seth tallied 2,101 career points, including 1,394 points as a Blue Devil, while Stephen, currently member of the Golden State Warriors, finished his career at Davidson with 2,635 points.
