The crack research staff at T.A.H. Worldwide Media came across this photo of Kyle Singler in last night’s Duke v. Temple game and one question immediately came to mind. Where the heck is Jon “Crazy Face” Scheyer?
We miss him and his crazy faces.
Scheyer and his bizarre countenances made the photo editor’s job so easy. One didn’t need to dig and dig looking for the perfect photo of the games leading scorer or the pivotal play that determined the outcome of the game…No, one just had to find the best picture of Scheyer making his trademark crazy face.
The faces were popular all over the ACC, but Terp Nation worked it the hardest…
A high school All-American, our main man Crazy Face once scored 21 points in a game's final 75 seconds of play. He was the fourth-leading scorer in Illinois high school history, and led his team to a state championship in 2005. Scheyer was named Illinois Mr. Basketball in 2006. He chose Duke and was the Most Valuable Player (MVP) of the 2009 ACC Men's Basketball Tournament. All of that explains why people in Illinois and throughout the Big 10 don’t like him.
At Duke, Scheyer was a 2010 consensus All-American (Second Team), a unanimous 2009–10 All-ACC First Team selection, and was named to the 2010 ACC All-Tournament First Team.
In addition, he played the most consecutive games in Duke history (144), shot the third-highest free throw percentage (.861), shot the third-most free throws (608), shot the fourth-most three-pointers (297), and is ranked ninth in scoring (2,077 points). Scheyer also holds the ACC single-season record for minutes (1,470 in 2009–10).
Scheyer was not drafted in the 2010 NBA Draft, waking on for the L.A. Clippers. He did not make the team but recently signed with the Rio Grande Valley Vipers, an NBA D-League team for the Houston Rockets. Scheyer suffered a serious eye injury (hence the goggles) while playing in the 2010 NBA Summer League (rumor has it he made a REALLY crazy face on that one…)

Scheyer holds the Duke, ACC and NCAA records for the most “crazy faces” in a four-year-career. Experts lost count somewhere around 18,934.
