Congratulations to each of these gentlemen !!!

11055500_1459448157678621_1673095795_nThese 5 gentlemen, added to previous Duke players who received the same distinction, means that Coach K has coached 66 players in 35 years with the same distinction.  It also means that, compared to the rest of the ACC, who logged 59 combined players in 59 combined years of all ACC programmes, Duke, under Coach K has exceeded everyone else combined. 

Congratulations to Coach K !!!

This clearly demonstrates that at Duke, Student Athletes are students first, and not just athletes !!!
