The team was losing by as many as eleven points at the start of the second half, but Curry put on a heroic performance managing to score thirty points in the second half. This gave the Wildcats their first win in a NCAA tournament since 1969. Something similar happened in the second round as well. Curry was limited to five points in the first half against heavy favorites Georgetown and his team was trailing by seventeen points at one point. Curry managed to score twenty-five points in the second half, helping his team advance to the next round. Georgetown was the second seeded team in the nation that year. The whole nation noticed Curry's talent as the Wildcats lost to the top seeded Kansas Jayhawks after winning another battle versus third seeded Wisconsin. Curry managed to break several records in the process including: most three pointers in a season and joined an elite group of players to score more than 30 points in their first four games of a NCAA tournament. Stephen Curry made sure that Davidson's name would not be forgotten in the near future with his performances over his three years there. Now Curry has transferred his work ethic, attitude towards the game, and personal values into his NBA career. The future looks bright for Steph Curry at the age of twenty-five as he has already left a significant legacy at Davidson College and in the NBA as well. The holder of the record for total three pointers made in a regular season in the NBA and in the NCAA has a very optimistic future ahead of him. Steph Curry is emerging as one of the greatest point guards of the modern era. It will be exciting to see years from now how he will go down in the record books.

Genre: Political Science
A provocative and lively deep dive into the meaning of America's first black presidency, from “one of the most graceful and lucid intellectuals writing on race and politics today” (Vanity Fair). Michael Eric Dyson explores the powerful, surprising way the politics of race have shaped Barack Obama’s identity and groundbreaking presidency. How has President Obama dealt publicly with race—as the national traumas of Tamir Rice, Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown, Eric Garner, Freddie Gray, and Walter Scott have played out during his tenure? What can we learn from Obama's major race speeches about his approach to racial conflict and the black criticism it provokes? Dyson explores whether Obama’s use of his own biracialism as a radiant symbol has been driven by the president’s desire to avoid a painful moral reckoning on race. And he sheds light on identity issues within the black power structure, telling the fascinating story of how Obama has spurned traditional black power brokers, significantly reducing their leverage. President Obama’s own voice—from an Oval Office interview granted to Dyson for this book—along with those of Eric Holder, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Andrew Young, and Maxine Waters, among others, add unique depth to this profound tour of the nation’s first black presidency.

Genre: Biography & Autobiography
The #1 national bestseller and inside story of Steph Curry, the greatest shooter basketball has ever seen. Golden is the first book to provide an all-access look at Steph Curry and the team that has fueled Dub Nation—by longtime Warriors beat reporter and Bay Area News Group sports columnist Marcus Thompson, the go-to expert on all things Golden State. A lifelong Warriors fan turned insider Thompson is uniquely qualified to tell the definitive story of a singular talent, pulling back the curtain on the crazy work ethic and on-court intensity that make Curry great—and the emphasis on family and faith that keeps him grounded. Combining the competitive grit and fun-loving spirit of his mother with the mild demeanor, easy charm, and sharp shooting of his father, former NBA player Dell Curry, Steph Curry derives support and strength from his close-knit kin and his commitment to Christianity. This hard-working, wholesome image however is both a blessing and curse in a League of big personalities. Thompson unravels the complicated underpinnings of the Steph Curry hate with a nuanced analysis of how class and complexion come into play when a child with an NBA pedigree becomes the face of a sport traditionally honed on inner-city black top and dominated by the less privileged. With unprecedented access, Thompson draws from exclusive interviews with Steph Curry, his family, his teammates, Coach Steve Kerr, and the Warriors owners to bring readers inside the locker room and courtside with this remarkable athlete and man.
