While he was breaking NBA records and leading the Warriors to their sixth trip to the Western Conference Finals in eight years, Steph Curry was also doing some homework in his free time.
Twelve years after his expected graduation date, Curry earned a sociology degree from Davidson University this weekend. He couldn’t make the trip to North Carolina to put on his cap and gown for the commencement ceremony, but a Curry cardboard cutout was in attendance and they announced “Wardell Stephen Curry II” as a 2022 graduate. Warriors PR even put on the classic graduation song “Pomp and circumstance” as he stepped up to the podium Monday to talk about his degree and the upcoming matchup against the Dallas Mavericks in the Western Conference Finals.
In order to earn his Bachelor’s, Curry said he authored a thesis on advancing gender equity through sports.
