WASHINGTON (AP) What started as an innocuous conversation during a public event has evolved into a golf partnership between NBA star Stephen Curry and Howard University.
The two-time NBA MVP announced Monday that he is helping Howard re-establish a golf program. Curry is providing a donation that will allow one of the countrys most prominent historically black universities to launch Division I womens and mens teams for the 2020-21 academic year.
The 31-year-old Curry, who has won three NBA championships with the Golden State Warriors, has long been known as a passionate golfer. But the idea of partnering with Howard didnt start until January, when Curry went to the campus for a screening of the documentary Emanuel.
