Cheer up, Kentucky fans. At least the Wildcats won in a bet involving Golden State Warriors star Steph Curry.
On Friday, video surfaced of the two-time MVP wearing a Kentucky jersey during a shooting session. It was an odd sight, given that Curry starred at Davidson from 2006-09 before beginning his professional career as the seventh overall pick by the Warriors in the 2009 NBA Draft.
Turns out, Curry wore a jersey from former Kentucky guard Kelenna Azubuike, who played for the Wildcats from 2002-05. Currently, Azubuike is an analyst for NBC Sports Bay Area. The sight was the result of a bet made before Kentucky beat Davidson in the NCAA Tournament on March 15.
A Curry always pays his debts.

Props to Curry for doing his part to complete the bet. True, Kentucky fans are feeling blue after Kansas State ended the Wildcats’ season Thursday in Atlanta during Sweet 16 play. But you’ll always have video of Curry swishing shots in a Kentucky jersey, Big Blue Nation. That’s something, right?
