Stephen Curry's Davidson jersey won't be retired - yet

  NBA Champion? Check. NBA MVP? Check. Undefeated in 2015? Check. Retired college jersey? Nope.

Stephen Curry, reigning NBA MVP and NBA champion, may be the most recognizable basketball player on the planet.

 However, according to a story by ESPN's C.L. Brown, Davidson won't honor Curry by retiring his jersey anytime soon.

The school only retires the jerseys of players who've graduated and a Davidson degree is not among Curry's many accolades. He left the school after his junior season to enter the 2009 NBA Draft.

Curry told ESPN that he plans to finish school and get his degree. It's been hard to find time with the long NBA season plus playoffs, which Curry's Golden State Warriors seem to be a lock for again this year, and training with USA Basketball for the 2016 Rio Olympics.

Until Curry's schedule frees up and he can hit the books again, the number worn by Davidson's most notable player will be available for current Wildcats.
