 Jay Bilas Biography

Jay Bilas, ESPN broadcaster and attorney, is one of basketball's strongest voices. He joined ESPN as a college basketball analyst in 1995 and today serves as game and studio analyst, working more than 40 games a season and co-hosting ESPN's popular road show, "College GameDay." He also is a regular contributor to "SportsCenter," ESPN.com, ESPN The Magazine and ESPN radio, and he provides commentary on coverage of the NBA Draft and NCAA Final Four.

Bilas is a two-time Emmy nominee for Best Studio Analyst and in 2010 was named Best Game Analyst by Sports Illustrated. He received "Best Column of the Year" from the US Basketball Writers Association and the "Distinguished Young Alumni Award" from Duke Law School.

The 6'8" Bilas was a four-year starter for Mike Krzyzewski at Duke from 1982-86. He finished his career with 1,062 points, 692 rebounds, and was third among Duke's all-time career field-goal percentage leaders (56 percent). As a senior, Bilas was a starter on the 37-win Duke squad that played in the 1986 NCAA Championship game.

He graduated from Duke with a degree in political science in 1986 and from Duke Law School in 1992. He has been litigation attorney with the Charlotte, N.C., firm of Moore & Van Allen, PLLC since 1992.

Bilas was one of two student-athletes in the nation appointed to the NCAA's Long-Range Planning Committee (1984-86). He appeared on CBS's "Face the Nation" on April 7, 1985 to discuss academics and athletics. During summers, he worked as a production assistant for ABC Sports, which included stints at the 1983 PGA Championship, the 1984 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles and in 1984 and 85 with Monday Night Baseball.

A 1986 NBA draft pick of the Dallas Mavericks, Bilas played professionally in Italy (1987-88) and Spain (1989) before returning to Duke as an assistant coach from 1990-92. The Blue Devils made three NCAA Championship Game appearances during his tenure as a coach, winning the championship in '91 and '92.

A member of the Screen Actors Guild, Bilas has appeared in various commercials, an episode of the television show "The White Shadow" and had a feature role in the 1989 Columbia Pictures movie "I Come in Peace." A native of Rolling Hills, Calif., Bilas averaged 23.7 points and 13.5 rebounds as a senior at Rolling Hills High School.
