National Defensive Player of the Year in 1986-87 Season
Four-Year Starter at Point Guard
His 259 Steals and 708 Assists Rank Second All-Time at Duke

Tommy Amaker is the 23rd Blue Devil men's basketball player to be inducted into the Duke Sports Hall of Fame, and the fourth who played under coach Mike Krzyzewski.

A native of Falls Church, Va., Amaker was a four-year starter at point guard for Krzyzewski. Over that span, Amaker helped lead the Blue Devils to a 108-30 record, four NCAA Tournaments, and an appearance in the 1986 Final Four.

The 1986-87 season was a special one for Amaker as he not only earned All-America honors but was also named National Defensive Player of the Year. Amaker's 259 career steals and 708 assists rank second all-time at Duke. In 1988, Amaker rejoined Krzyzewski and the Blue Devils as a graduate assistant while he took classes at Duke's Fuqua School of Business.

Amaker remained on the staff for nine years, helping the Blue Devils capture two national championships, three Final Four appearances, and a 230-80 record overall. Following the 1996-97 season Amaker took the head coaching job at Seton Hall University, compiling a 68-55 record before the University of Michigan came calling with a head coaching job.
