BLACKSBURG, Va.—Seth Curry hasn’t had an abundance of success playing against Virginia Tech, his father’s alma mater. Two years ago, when Curry fouled out after registering zero points in 15 minutes, the students chanted, “Who’s your Daddy?” as Dell Curry sat in the stands.
So before Duke’s Thursday night game in Blacksburg—Curry’s last game in the Hokies’ home arena—Mike Krzyzewski had a talk with his senior sharpshooter.
“It’s not about making up for anything,” Krzyzewski said to Curry. “Just play.”
And that’s what Curry did, as he let the game come to him. He dominated the floor just like his Daddy did as Duke rolled to a 88-56 win.
