Murray State's Ja Morant has joined the list of superstars from mid-major schools to capture the nation's attention for his dazzling play.
Morant's stock skyrocketed Thursday after posting a triple-double with 17 points, 16 assists and 11 rebounds in the Racers' 83-64 win over Marquette in the 2019 NCAA tournament.
Curry knows something about emerging from a mid-major program to become one of the greatest players of his generation. The two-time NBA MVP became a household name by leading Davidson to the Elite 8 in 2008.
If Morant uses his star-making turn in the NCAA tournament like Curry has, some NBA team is going to be very happy for a long time.
