10 Notable Father-Son Combos in College Basketball

Dell Curry & Stephen Curry
FATHER: Dell Curry, Virginia Tech (1982-1986)
SON: Stephen Curry, Davidson (2006-2009)

COMPLEX SAYS: Here's a case where the son might eclipse the father. With the Hokies, Dell put up some solid numbers, but Stephen put up even better numbers, averaging 25.3 points per game throughout his collegiate career and leading Davidson to an Elite Eight appearance in the 2008 NCAA Tournament for the first time since 1969. Dell had a pretty good pro career, too; we'll see how Steph fares at Golden State, but so far, so good.

Rick Barry & Brent Barry
FATHER: Rick Barry, Miami (1961-1965)
SON: Brent Barry, Oregon State (1991-1995)

COMPLEX SAYS: It would be hard to top a senior year in which Rick Barry averaged 37.4 points per game and became the second overall pick in the 1965 NBA draft. While Brent didn't match those numbers, he did make people believe that white men can jump...and lose their wives to French teammates. Oh, too soon?

John Stockton & David Stockton
FATHER: John Stockton, Gonzaga (1980-1984)
SON: David Stockton, Gonzaga (2010- )

COMPLEX SAYS: Entering his first year of academic eligibility with the same college that his father made famous, David Stockton has much to live up to. People should remember, though, even the elder Stockton started his freshman year with poor numbers, but got exponentially better with every season at Gonzaga.

Stan Love & Kevin Love
FATHER: Stan Love, Oregon (1968-1971)
SON: Kevin Love, UCLA (2007-2008)

COMPLEX SAYS: After making his mark in the NCAA, Stan Love did not create many waves in the NBA. So after four years in the league, Stan retired from basketball to work as a security guard for his brother's group, The Beach Boys. (The Beach Boys needed security?) Kevin wasn't always into playing ball, but the father forced the game down his son's throat. Turned out to be a good move. After only one year in college, the younger Love was named the Pac-10 player of the year and led the much-storied UCLA Bruins to a Final Four appearance in the 2008 NCAA Tournament. Love recently made waves by posting a 30-30 game for the Timberwolves. Now all he needs is to grow his dad's mustache.

Bill Walton & Luke Walton
FATHER: Bill Walton, UCLA (1971-1974)
SON: Luke Walton, Arizona (2001-2003)

COMPLEX SAYS: Luke Walton didn't come into his own until his third year with the Wildcats, during which he averaged a solid 15.1 points, 7.3 rebounds and 6.3 a.ssists per game. Too bad Luke was already falling behind his father, who won the Naismith College Player of the Year award for three consecutive years from 1972-1974. We're sure they discuss their respective careers over bong hits while listening to the Dead.

Scott May & Sean May
FATHER: Scott May, Indiana (1974-1976)
SON: Sean May, North Carolina (2002-2005)

COMPLEX SAYS: Scott May did not have a great NBA career, but his collegiate career consisted of a 1976 Naismith Award for Player of the Year. He ended up the second overall selection in the 1976 draft by the Chicago Bulls. Sean May ignored the allure of going to the Hoosiers and decided to pave his own path at North Carolina. The younger May followed in his father's shoes in an unlikely way by thriving in the NCAA, but failing to translate that into a successful NBA career.

Patrick Ewing & Patrick Ewing, Jr.
FATHER: Patrick Ewing, Georgetown (1981-1985)
SON: Patrick Ewing, Jr., Indiana/Georgetown (2003-2008)

COMPLEX SAYS: As many of the previous fathers mentioned, the older Ewing was awarded the Naismith Award for Player of the Year, cementing himself as one of the best college centers ever. As for Junior? He started off at Indiana as a Hoosier, where he didn't accomplish much (with the exception of this rad Midnight Madness dunk). He then transferred to Georgetown, where he wore his father's #33. He even had some brief cups of coffee with the Knicks, his father's pro team. Sadly, his basketball destiny will always be in his father's immense shadow.

Glen Rice & Glen Rice, Jr.
FATHER: Glen Rice, Michigan (1985-1989)
SON: Glen Rice, Jr., Georgia Tech (2009- )

COMPLEX SAYS: For his work in the 1989 NCAA Tournament, the senior Rice has carved a place for himself in Michigan Wolverines men's basketball history. Rice, Jr. is just looking to make his own name with the Yellow Jackets. While it's early in his NCAA career, things are beginning to look up for the sophomore.

Michael Jordan & Jeffrey and Marcus Jordan
FATHER: Michael Jordan, North Carolina (1982-1984)
SON: Jeffrey Jordan, Illinois/Central Florida (2007- ); Marcus Jordan, Central Florida (2009- )

COMPLEX SAYS: Does anything need to be said about possibly the best player to ever play the game? With the Tar Heels, the eldest Jordan took ACC Rookie of the Year honors in 1982 and National Player of the Year in 1984. Unfortunately, neither son has been able to grab the headlines quite like Mike—unless you count Marcus' role in the termination of UCF's sponsorship deal with adidas.

Jimmy Walker & Jalen Rose
FATHER: Jimmy Walker, Providence (1965-1967)
SON: Jalen Rose, Michigan (1991-1994)

COMPLEX SAYS: Jimmy Walker held the NCAA's career scoring title for 38 years, averaged 30.4 points per game in his senior year, and became the number-one overall pick in the 1967 NBA draft. Jalen Rose was a part of the "Fab Five" at Michigan, which resulted in back-to-back appearances in the NCAA National Championship game. It was during his time at Michigan that Rose discovered that his father was Walker. Wow, that's kinda ill, on some Star Wars-type ish.

Mychal and Klay Thompson could be on that list after some time. Rick Barry had two other sons that played college ball, if Jordans sons cracked the list they gotta get on there too. Oh yeah maybe even Ralph Sampson and his kid too.
