Duke senior guard Seth Curry was doing his best to keep the No. 1 Blue Devils in the game before going down with an injury on Saturday against N.C. State.

Duke Blue Devils guard Seth Curry left the team's game against the NC State Wolfpack on Saturday with an apparent left leg injury.

Curry slipped and hit the floor at the 3:15 mark in the second half, and proceeded to grab his left leg, prompting Duke's training staff to attend to the senior playmaker. Curry was helped to the locker room for further evaluation, but returned to the bench shortly thereafter.

Curry has been dealing with an injury to his right shin for most of the season. Upon exiting the game, Curry led the Blue Devils with 22 points on 8-of-16 shooting, and hit several big 3-pointers to keep Duke within striking distance of N.C. State late in the game after he appeared to come up limping after driving to the basket for a layup earlier in the half.

Curry is Duke's second-leading scorer, averaging 16.0 points per game. He is a 41.4-percent shooter from beyond the 3-point line on the season.
