The Duke basketball program has seen a plethora of elite players come through the hallowed doors of Cameron Indoor Stadium but only a select few can call themselves the Top-10 scorers of all time.
The list has a lot of ‘old timers’ on it considering the recent ‘one-and-dones’ the Blue Devils have produced, but it brings up the idea of how many points players like Jayson Tatum, Zion Williamson, and RJ Barrett could have scored in their careers had they spent four seasons in Durham.
Each player that sees his name on the Top-10 all-time scorer list has at least 2,000 points in a Duke uniform.
Interestingly enough, Duke’s senior captain Jeremy Roach would have to score 1,097 points this season in order to crack the list and the most points he has ever scored in a season in 435, which he did during his junior year.
However, Roach did have limitations during his freshman season of only playing 24 games due to the COVID-19 shortened season.
Should the captain return for his final year of eligibility ahead of the 2024-25 season, he could find his name on the list.
So who are the Top-10 scorers of all time in the history of Duke basketball?
Duke basketball all-time scoring list: No. 10
- 4 seasons at Duke
- Career Points: 2,077
- Points per game: 14.4
The current Duke basketball head coach, Jon Scheyer, is the first player unveiled on the list after an incredible four seasons with the Blue Devils which saw him score 2,077 points in 144 games.
Not only did Scheyer help lead Duke to its fourth National Championship during his senior season in 2010, he was also named as a consensus Second Team All-American and First Team All-ACC selection during his final year in Durham.
Jon Scheyer was named the Most Valuable Player of the ACC Tournament in 2009 and an ACC All-Freshman Team selection in 2007.
Now, he looks to add to his legacy with the Blue Devils entering his second year as the program’s head coach.
