For the second summer in a row, Stephen Curry will be hosting a camp for some of the nation’s best high school guards. This year, he sent out personalized invitations for SC30 Select Camp to each and every one of the kids that were invited.
This season, in addition to the high school guards that will be in attendance, Under Armor is inviting college guards to come back and work as counselors at the event in addition to being able to workout with the NBA MVP himself.
Maryland’s Melo Trimble, Notre Dame’s Demetrius Jackson, Seton Hall’s Isaiah Whitehead and Northwestern’s Bryant McIntosh are the four college counselors that have been invited, and here is what Steph sent them:
Is there a more likeable star in any sport right now than Steph Curry?
Seton Hall guard Isaiah Whithead could return by the end of January
On Thursday afternoon, the Big East held a conference call with the 10 head coaches. During Kevin Willard’s turn, he updated the status of Seton Hall guard Isaiah Whitehead.
The 6-foot-4 Whitehead has been out since Dec. 24, missing the last six games for the Pirates. Willard said his heralded freshmen guard could be available for Seton Hall’s game against Marquette Jan. 28.
“We probably won’t take another picture [MRI] until after the DePaul game [on Jan. 22],” Willard said.
“We are glad that we caught this injury early,” Willard said at the time of the injury. “We have outstanding doctors who will monitor Isaiah’s progress, and we look forward to having a healthy Isaiah back on the court as soon as possible.”
Despite missing their second-leading scorer over the last six games, the Pirates are 4-2 — 3-2 to start Big East play — racking up back-to-back wins against then-No. 15 St. John’s and No. 6 Villanova to begin league play.
If Jan. 28 at Marquette is indeed Whitehead’s return, the Pirates will play two more contests without the Brooklyn native against DePaul and on the road against Butler.
Picked in the preseason to be the Big East Freshman of the Year, guard Isaiah Whitehead has been solid for a Seton Hall team that’s won nine of its first 11 games. Whitehead’s averaging 11.9 points, 4.3 rebounds and a team-best 3.4 assists per game this season, and he’s started all 11 games for Kevin Willard’s team.
Unfortunately for Whitehead and the Pirates he’s going to miss some time, as it was learned Wednesday that the freshman is dealing with a stress fracture in the second and third metatarsals in his foot.

“Stress Fracture Out For A Few Weeks But I Know & Believe My Team Will Do Great Without Me Can’t Wait To Get Back On The Court,” Whitehead tweeted. A couple hours after Whitehead tweeted that he would be sidelined, the school confirmed the injury.
“We are glad that we caught this injury early,” Seton Hall head coach Kevin Willard said in a statement according to Jerry Carino of Gannett New Jersey. “We have outstanding doctors who will monitor Isaiah’s progress, and we look forward to having a healthy Isaiah back on the court as soon as possible.”
Seton Hall plays its final non-conference game Saturday against Maine, and their games to begin Big East play won’t be easy. The Pirates host No. 17 St. John’s on New Year’s Eve, with that game being followed with a home matchup with No. 7 Villanova.
Seton Hall will then play two straight on the road, at Xavier and at Creighton. With Whitehead out of the lineup freshmen Khadeen Carrington and Desi Rodriguez, who have played 19.9 and 15.6 minutes per game respectively, should see their minutes increase.
