Given the fact that Duke needed a 6-0 run in the final two minutes in Sunday night’s 62-61 win during a visit to Conte Forum to take on Boston College, the focus after the game was on whether or not this is a Duke team that should become the No. 1 team in the country.
As a result, we’ve glossed over the fact that one Blue Devil managed to set a pretty cool record last night.
When Seth Curry hit a three a minute into the second half, it moved him and his brother, Stephen Curry, into first place, as the highest-scoring pair of brothers in the history of college basketball. Stephen scored 2,635 points in his three-year career at Davidson, while Seth now has 1,858 points in his career at Liberty and Duke.
Combined, they now have 4,493 total points, putting them eight in front of Tyler and Ben Hansbrough, who finished with 4,485 career points.
Here’s the rest of the top five:
- Seth (Liberty, Duke) and Stephen Curry (Davidson): 4,493 points
- Tyler (North Carolina) and Ben (Mississippi State, Notre Dame) Hansbrough: 4,485 points
- Larry (Indiana State) and Eddie (Indiana State) Bird: 4,405 points
- Chuck (Auburn) and Wesley (Auburn) Person: 4,377 points
- Greg (Utah State) and Josh (Utah State) Grant: 4,124 points
