  • Thomas Lionel Hill Jr. (born August 31, 1971) is a retired American professional basketball player. A 6'5" shooting guard, Hill played at Duke University from 1989 to 1993, winning two NCAA Championships (1991 and 1992). His teammates at Duke included Grant Hill (no relation), Christian Laettner, and Bobby Hurley. Thomas Hill received Third Team All-ACC honors in 1991,1992, 1993 and was a team captain during his senior season. He played in 141 career games for Duke, 6th on their all-time list as of March 28, 2010; directly behind Jon Scheyer, and tied with Brian Davis. After graduating, Hill was drafted by the Indiana Pacers in the 2nd round (#39 pick overall) of the 1993 NBA Draft. Hill never played an NBA regular season game but he did play in preseason games where he scored a high of 14. He played in the Australian National Basketball League for the Perth Wildcats. Thomas Hill's father, Thomas Sr., won a bronze medal in the 110-meter hurdles at the 1972 Summer Olympics. Hill is perhaps best remembered for his emotional reaction after his Duke teammate Christian Laettner hit a last second shot to defeat Kentucky in the elite eight of the 1992 NCAA Tournament. After Laettner hit the shot, a CBS camera panned to Hill who appeared to be crying of joy with his hands on top of his head. After his basketball career Hill proceeded to coach for Avenues: The World School in New York City and currently is the head coach of varsity basketball. (en)
