North Carolina: MICHAEL JORDAN (32,292)

Who else would lead North Carolina players but the incomparable Michael Jordan. His Airness scored 32,292 points, most coming with the legendary Chicago Bulls teams that won six championships. Fifteen Tar Heel players have scored more than 10,000 points in the Association. Jordan averaged 30.1 ppg in his amazing career.

Notre Dame: ADRIAN DANTLEY (23,177)

Adrian Dantley is far and away the leader in points by a Notre Dame player who went on to have an NBA career. The great from Washington DC scored 23,177 points on .540 shooting. He averaged 24.3 ppg. Dantley is nearly 10,000 points better than second-place Bill Laimbeer.

St. John’s: CHRIS MULLIN (17,911)

Another amazing shooter leads the way for St. John’s. Chris Mullin, who currently coaches the Red Storm, scored 17,911 points from 1986-2001. Mullin hit 38 percent of his shots from beyond the arc. One of the purest shooters to play anywhere, anytime.

Syracuse: CARMELO ANTHONY (25,551)

Carmelo Anthony’s NBA career has felt like a roller coaster – with many of the downs coming since he joined the Knicks. He won a championship in his lone year at Syracuse and moved on to an NBA career that has seen him score 25,551 points. The big question: Is that where Melo will finish or will another team pick him up in hopes he can find the magic that made him an All-Star multiple times.

Temple: EDDIE JONES (14,155)

Eddie Jones may not be the best-known name on the list. However, he is the leading scorer in Temple history. Jones and Guy Rodgers are the only Owls to break the 10,000-point plateau. Jones averaged nearly 15 ppg while playing from 1995-2008.
