Lucas starred at Hillside High School in Durham and his jersey is retired there along with former Wake Forest star Rodney Rogers.
Thanks to the internet for the picture. What in the world is on the display case? Sigh. High school kids. Lucas went on to star at Maryland in college and made the All-American team three teams, first team his junior and senior years, second team during his sophomore year. His great college career earned him a spot in one of Fleer's Greats sets which featured college basketball players.
Here is the Lucas card featuring the Bull City native in his Terps uniform.
One interesting thing I learned about Lucas while doing a little research for this post is that he was actually the ACC Men's Singles Tennis Champion twice during his college career and made an All-American team along the way too. He even played a little professional tennis in his spare time on top of his NBA career.
