Player Bio

Calvin Duncan is considered a legend at VCU, one of just five players to have his jersey retired after four successful seasons with the Rams. Coming out of the famed Oak Hill Academy where he held the single-game scoring record for 28 years, Duncan joined VCU in 1981. He went on to lead the Rams to three consecutive NCAA tournament appearances and earned VCU their highest ever seed, a No.2 seed, in the 1985 NCAA tournament. A Sunbelt Conference Player of the Year, Duncan would eventually be selected by the Cleveland Cavaliers with the 30th overall pick of the 1985 NBA Draft, then was acquired by the Chicago Bulls on draft night. He would ultimately choose Jesus over Jordan however, opting to follow his faith, joining the traveling Christian basketball team Athletes in Action instead of playing professionally in the NBA. Duncan later went on to play professionally overseas and in the Continental Basketball Association, then later coached in the CBA as well, earning an eventual CBA Coach of the Year award. He returned to Richmond in 1997 is now the pastor at Richmond's Faith and Family church. Duncan can be seen at every VCU home basketball game to this day.
