The Countdown: 30 days until the ACC

Streeter Lecka

As the ACC countdown continues, we look at a legendary Virginia Tech player who is now part of the first family of basketball.

Wendell Stephen "Dell" Curry might be a familiar name for all you kids out there. He's the father of Steph and Seth, right? Well, yes, but he was also pretty good back in day.

Curry starred for the Virginia Tech Hokies wearing the number 30, which is now hanging from the rafters in Blacksburg. Curry was a four-year starter at Virginia Tech and led the Hokies to two NITs and two NCAA appearances, but never advanced beyond the first round.

Dell finished his Hokie career with 2389 points, placing him second all-time at Virginia Tech. He went on to be drafted in the first round by the Utah Jazz. Curry also suited up for the Cavaliers, Hornets, Bucks, and Raptors before retiring in 2002. In the NBA, Curry averaged a respectable 11.7 points per game.

Like his sons, Curry was deadly from beyond the three point line. Steph and Seth have carried on the Curry name. Curry now runs his own foundation in Charlotte, North Carolina to provide troubled youths with educational training and drug abuse counseling.

On and off the court, Curry's legacy lives on.
