Tim Duncan may be forever connected to the San Antonio Spurs for his 19 years of leadership on and off the court, but no one should ever forget that he spent four incredible years as a player for Wake Forest. On Sunday, the National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame inducted Duncan along with Winston-Salem State’s Cleo Hill, Indiana’s Scott May, Purdue’s Rick Mount, Creighton’s Paul Silas, Gonzaga’s John Stockton, Duke’s Jay Williams and coach Bo Ryan (former coach of Wisconsin, Milwaukee and Wisconsin-Platteville) to form the Class of 2017.
During his four years at Wake Forest, he helped lead the school to 4 NCAA Tournaments while averaging 16.5 points, 12.3 rebounds, 3.8 blocks and 2.3 assists. Duncan was named the National Association of Basketball Coaches Defensive Player of the Year 3 times, the ACC Player of the Year twice, and was the National Player of the Year in 1997. After his four years in school, Duncan was drafted number 1 by the Spurs and spent his entire career with the team.
Join us in congratulating our Tim Duncan in this amazing achievement.
