UNC basketball, Duke team up at college basketball hall of fame ceremony

Duke basketball’s Mike Krzyzewski — better known as Coach K — and UNC basketball’s Tyler Hansbrough headline the 2023 National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame class. 

College basketball’s fiercest rivals on the court, the Blue Devils and Tar Heels came together Wednesday night at a ceremony in Chicago to honor Krzyzewski, Hansbrough and former Duke star Johnny Dawkins.  

That trio made its mark along Tobacco Road, the ACC and the rest of the nation as three of the best in the history of the sport. Overall, UNC (14) and Duke (10) have a combined 24 representatives of their programs in the National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame.
