Freshmen were ineligible in those days, of course, but Heyman wasted no time asserting himself once he could play on the varsity. He averaged 25.2 points per game as a sophomore during the 1960-61 season – the first of three consecutive in which Heyman earned All-America honors.
One of 13 players whose jersey has been retired at Duke, Heyman averaged 25.1 points and 10.9 rebounds in his three varsity seasons. He was a three-time All-ACC selection and in 1963 led Duke to its first Final Four. The Blue Devils didn’t win, but he still earned Final Four Most Outstanding Player honors.
