Curry was the nation's biggest freshman surprise in '06-07. The Son of Dell was overlooked by ACC schools but made an instant impact as a prolific scorer for the Wildcats, averaging 21.5 points per game as they won the Southern Conference title. Richards, meanwhile, is the heart of the 'Cats -- a highly underrated point guard who racked up 249 assists against only 106 turnovers, and logged a team-high 34.3 minutes per game.
