Greg Newton

Greg Newton (born September 7, 1974 in Niagara Falls, Ontario) was center for the Duke Blue Devils basketball team from 1994-1997. Newton was Team Captain in his senior season. [ [http://dukeupdate.com/Records/team_captains.htm Team Captains ] ] He was a member of the Canadian National Team, that finished seventh in the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney, Australia.

Newton averaged 7.6 points per game for his career. [ [http://dukeupdate.com/Alumni/greg_newton.htm Greg Newton ] ] When Tim Duncan was told that Newton had called him soft, he cited Newton's dubious credentials and facetiously asked how anyone could argue with that. "Greg Newton's everybody's All-American."

Newton was suspended from Duke in 1995 for cheating on a computer science exam. [ [http://www.slate.com/id/101920/ The Blue Devils Aren't Angels - By Jason Zengerle - Slate Magazine ] ]

Newton played professionally with the USBL's Raleigh Cougars. The Cougars promoted him by citing his greatest accomplishment - at the time, he was one away from Duke's top 10 in blocks.

Newton also played professionally in Brazil, Israel, and Bosnia.
