Carr, currently the director of business and community development for the Cleveland Cavaliers of the National Basketball Association, remains the all-time leading career scorer in Notre Dame basketball history. He finished with 2,560 points between 1968-71 -- helping him earn national player of the year honors as a senior in 1970-71 from the Associated Press and United Press International.

He still ranks as the most prolific scorer in the history of the NCAA basketball tournament, thanks to his 41.3-point average in seven NCAA games. He holds the NCAA tournament single-game record with 61 points vs. Ohio University in '70, posted three of the top five scoring performances in tournament history and still holds six NCAA tournament records.

A three-year starter at guard for the Irish, the 6-3 Washington, D.C., product (Mackin High School) averaged 22.0 points for the Irish as a sophomore, 38.1 as a junior and 37.9 as a senior, helping the Irish to NCAA appearances each of those seasons to go with records of 20-7, 21-8 and 20-9. He finished second nationally in scoring as both a junior and senior and his career 34.6 scoring mark ranks second all-time.

The first player chosen by the Cavaliers in the 1971 NBA draft, Carr made the NBA all-rookie team in '72 after averaging 21.2 points his first season. He finished with 10,473 career points, playing nine seasons in Cleveland, then one with Washington and Dallas in 1980-81. He received the Walter Kennedy Citizenship Award in 1980 from the Professional Basketball Writers Association of America for superior accomplishments in community affairs.

Active with the community's literacy program as a spokesman for "Stay-in-School," Carr also hosts the pre-game show on the Cavs' radio broadcasts and participates with the Cavs' Legends Team.

A '71 Notre Dame graduate in economics, Carr, his wife Sharon and children Jason and Ashley reside in suburban Cleveland.
