As a young basketball player, he attended Davidson (North Carolina) College. He made his mark averaging 21.5 points per game as a freshman to lead all first year players in the country.

He used his signature three-pointer shot incessantly.
His junior year got him named a consensus first-team All-American. He later entered the 2009 NBA draft; he was then selected by the Warriors with the 7th overall pick.
