Imagine how many there would be if Coach K could develop talent. 50? 100?

Awesome stats!

Does anyone know Daniel Ewing is playing now? I would imagine overseas but where?

I thought I only counted 8 UNC players in the NBA recently, so I need to go back and hunt for the other 3.....

What was the last NCAA team to have more than 14 alumni on NBA rosters on the opening day of the season?

My bet is the answer is "none."

I was thinking the same thing about avg salary. One thing to consider is how the youngest players impact these averages. For Duke, you've got Demarcus, Shav and McRoberts far less established to say the least and all under $1M. If you recalc w/o their salaries Duke avg is 6.58M. Not sure what impact this has for other schools. Probably similar. And not saying we shouldn't count these guys. I guess we can spin this any way we want but there are factors to consider. In the end, I love that we have the most players and that so many are doing so well.

the leader is now Duke, with 14 players making it to the NBA lists. Rookie DeMarcus Nelson made the Golden State Warriors in his home state of California.
