Mike Krzyzewski and Tyler Hansbrough headline the 2023 National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame class, which was announced on Tuesday. Here’s what you need to know:
Johnny Dawkins, Tom Konchalski and Herb Magee round out the full list of inductees.
Coach K spent 42 seasons at Duke and retired in 2022 as the all-time winningest coach in Division I men’s basketball history with 1,202 victories. He was inducted into the inaugural class in 2006 but can now be officially added to the Hall of Fame in retirement.
Hansbrough, the unanimous 2008 National Player of the Year, played at North Carolina from the 2005-06 season until 2008-09. He is the ACC’s all-time leading scorer, the fourth-leading scorer in NCAA Tournament history and the NCAA’s all-time leader in free throws made. He was also the only ACC player to lead his team in scoring and rebounding in all four seasons.
Dawkins played at Duke before serving as an assistant at his alma mater, under Coach K, from 1998-2008. Dawkins then became the coach at Stanford and is currently the coach at UCF. He played for the Blue Devils from 1982-86 and was named the Naismith National Player of the Year as a senior.
