Arguably the greatest women's basketball player in Blue Devils' history, Chris Moreland is the first women's basketball player to be elected to the Duke Sports Hall of Fame.

While in Durham from 1985-88, Moreland rewrote the Blue Devils' record books. Not only is she the career leader in scoring with 2,232 points, but Moreland is also the program's all-time leading rebounder with 1,229 boards in her four years.

With nearly 500 points and 400 rebounds separating her from Sue Hartnett, who is number two all-time in both scoring and rebounding, Moreland's statistics illustrate how dominant a player she was.

Her many accomplishments did not go unnoticed as Moreland received many accolades as a Blue Devil. In 1988 Moreland was named first team All-America, becoming the first women's basketball player at Duke to receive that honor.

Also, Moreland was named All-ACC four times, along with capturing ACC Rookie of the Year in 1985 and ACC Player of the Year in 1987.
