Duke men's basketball coach Mike Krzyzewski wants his team to shoot three-pointers.

The Blue Devils have pulled the trigger on at least 700 shots from beyond the arc in four of the last five seasons.

In 2011-12, Duke led the ACC in three-point attempts (713), made three-pointers (268) and three-point percentage (37.6 percent).

With this being a priority in Coach K's offensive scheme, he annually recruits players who can stroke it from downtown.

Duke has had eight winners of the McDonald's All-American game three-point shooting contest:

Chris Collins (1992)

Trajan Langdon (1994)

Nate James (1996)

Shane Battier (1997)

Chris Duhon (2000)

J.J. Redick (2002)

Ryan Kelly (2009)

Rasheed Sulaimon (2012)

With talent like this, why wouldn't you want your teams to be ready to put it up from distance?

 

The following are the 10 all-time best three-point shooters in Duke's history.

Thank you to the Duke Athletic Department and their 2011-12 Duke Men's Basketball Media Guide for providing an endless supply of Blue Devil hoops' stats!
