The best Duke Blue Devils point guards ever have all had a part in making Duke one of the top-tier Division I college programs in the nation. The early days of the college game were dominated by swift passers and smooth shooters, but even as the game has pivoted more toward versatile swingmen, outside shooters are still a major part of NCAA success.

Older players like Bobby Hurley and Johnny Dawkins made their mark in the history of Duke's offense with their great performances in the past, as newer players like J.J. Redick and Kyrie Irving carried on that legacy with tremendous talent and skill. The Blue Devils have had many point guards go on to the NBA, and some even had Hall of Fame-level careers, but it all started with their days starting for Duke basketball.

So which of these players from Duke's long history deserves to rank near the top of the list? Who are the best Blue Devils PGs of all-time? Vote below, and if you see any players missing from the list who should be considered, feel free to add them as well.
