School record season scoring average - 26.1 - 1967

Bob Verga, a native of Sea Girt, N.J., earned All-America basketball honors at Duke in 1966 and 1967. Known for his deadly shooting touch, Verga still holds the school record for highest scoring average in a single season - 26.1 points per gram in 1967.

He was a vital cog in the 1966 Duke team that finished 3rd in the nation with a 26-4 record. That team was ranked number one in the nation for much of the season and may have won the national title had Verga not come down with a severe case of the flue the day before the national semi-finals. Although able to play, Verga was sub-par physically and scored just four points in that game, an 83-79 loss to Kentucky.

Duke's three-year record during Verga's career was 64-18. He graduated as the school's fourth leading career scorer with 1,758 points.

Following graduation, Verga played eight years of professional basketball.
