Davidson College won’t retire jersey of NBA star until he earns degree

Former Davidson College basketball player Stephen Curry has won an NBA championship and most valuable player honors, but the college said it won’t retire his jersey until he earns his degree, according to ESPN.

Curry, who plays for the Golden State Warriors, left college a year early in 2009 to play in the NBA without completing requirements for his degree. Davidson said it won’t make an exception to its rule about only retiring jerseys of graduates, not even for its most famous player.

Curry told ESPN he eventually plans to complete requirements for graduation.
