Former Davidson star Stephen Curry added yet another accolade as he was named to the Southern Conference Hall of Fame Tuesday.
The reigning NBA Most Valuable Player finished his Wildcat career as the conference’s all-time leading scorer with 2,635 points. Curry, who just last week led the Golden State Warriors to an NBA-record 73 regular-season wins, holds the SoCon record for made 3-pointers (414).
The two-time conference player of the year, who also led Davidson to an Elite Eight run in the 2008 NCAA tournament, is joined in the hall’s Class of 2016 by former Carolina Panthers player Armanti Edwards, who won two NCAA Division I FCS championships at Appalachian State, as well as golfer Brad Faxon (Furman), basketball player Keith “Mister” Jennings (East Tennessee State) and women’s basketball player Karen Pelphrey (Marshall).
“This year’s group of inductees is one of the most impressive since the Hall’s inaugural class of 2009,” said SoCon Commissioner John Iamarino in a statement. “It features not only the current MVP of the NBA, but two other former SoCon basketball Players of the Year, one of the winningest quarterbacks in NCAA history, and a former collegiate golfer of the year who went on to win multiple PGA events. It is a remarkable group.”

The group, which was voted on by 20 media members and league administrators, will be inducted later this year.
Davidson competed in the SoCon for 74 years before departing the league for the Atlantic 10 in 2014.
