Earl Duncan played basketball for Syracuse University for one season. Duncan was a highly recruited guard out of the Los Angeles area, and came to Syracuse with high expectations.

Duncan had to sit out his freshman season due to academic reasons mandated by Proposition 48. He would be the top reserve player for the Orangemen his sophomore season. He shot a solid 41% from three point range, and provided decent ball handling to help out at the point guard position.

However, Duncan was unhappy with his playing time, and with Sherman Douglas, and classmates Stevie Thompson and Matt Roe all ahead of him on the depth chart, Duncan figured the opportunities would not be there for him, and he transferred to Rutgers.

Duncan would flourish at Rutgers, where he was joined by fellow Syracuse transfer Keith Hughes. The duo would lead Rutgers to their first NCAA tournament berth. In his two years at Rutgers, Duncan would average 14.6 ppg, 3.7 apg, shoot 40.7% from three point range, and hit 83% of his free throws.
