A 6'7" forward, Banks starred at Duke University, where he received the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) Rookie of the Year award in 1978. He also received team MVP honors three times. His Duke career is noteworthy in other regards as well—in 1980, during Mike Krzyzewski's first game against the Blue Devils' heated rival, the North Carolina Tar Heels, he hit the game-winning shot as time expired, sending the crowd into a massive frenzy and ushering in a new era in Blue Devils basketball.

He went on to play six seasons in the NBA with the San Antonio Spurs and the Chicago Bulls. He averaged 11.3 points per game spanning over 468 games in his professional NBA career.
