Curta, a 6-5 guard from Oak Lawn, Ill. (Dwight D. Eisenhower), was named to the Central Region third team after leading all of NCAA – regardless of division – in scoring with 32.7 points per game.

In the season finale at Illinois College, Curta broke NCAA Division III records for free throws made and attempted in a season with 252 and 329.

Curta, also a two-time All-Midwest Conference first-team selection, finished the season ranked in the Pioneers’ top 10 in three season categories besides the free throws marks. He is second in points with 785, fourth in field goals made with 243 and sixth in scoring average. He also ranks among the top 10 all-time in the MWC in those categories.
