There is a tie for ninth place between Jason Williams and Gene Banks, both Duke basketball legends in their own right.

Williams and Banks both scored 2,079 points in their Blue Devil careers but the younger of the two players only did it in three seasons.

Now referred to as ‘Jay’ Williams, won a National Title with Duke in 2001 but spent one more season in Durham after winning the championship, which saw him receive more accolades.

Williams won the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) in both 2001 and 2002 while he was also named as a consensus First Team All-American in those years in addition to his First Team All-ACC selections.

Williams was also the Most Valuable Player of the ACC Tournament in his freshman season after he already was named to the Third Team All-ACC and ACC All-Freshman Team.

His No. 22 is retired by Duke and hangs in the rafters of Cameron Indoor Stadium.

Gene Banks was just about as steady of a player for Duke when he entered as a freshman as when he left as a senior.

Banks averaged 17.1 points per game during his first season with the program and 18.5 points per contest as a senior.

He was a two-time Third Team All-American in 1979 and 1981 and a four-time selection to the All-ACC Teams after being named to the Second Team from 1987-1980 and finally cracking the First Team in 1981.

Banks was also named as the ACC Rookie of the Year in 1978.
