Pick 'Em

who you got on your all-time college team?

Post by tmcats » April 17th, 2020, 12:40 pm

mine would be oscar, pete, larry, magic, lewis. known by their first names ought to say it all. oh, the coach but of course: bobby.

Robertson's first season averaged 35 points and 15 rebounds a game; career 39 and 15.
Maravich averaged 44 points per game with no three-point line
Bird ranks fourth in scoring (2,850 points) among three-year players in D-I history
Johnson averaged eight assists per game over his two-year career to go along with 17 points and 8 rebounds
Alcinder won three national titles averaging 26 points and 16 rebounds.

Pretty hard to argue with that 5. 5 others who may challenge are Akeem the dream, Jerry W., Wilt the stilt, Bill Walton and the big E-Elvin Hayes

Probably the college basketball player who impressed me the most was Pistol Pete Maravich, really fun to watch.

Wayman Tisdale was a beast & love him or hate him, Laettner was an incredible college basketball player (Hurley too).

Manning took a very average team to the title. David Thompson is another stud, but I was only 5 when he finished at NCSU so i don't really remember him.

Another from that era...Phil Ford was really good at UNC, but I only remember him with the Kings.

Floppy socks and all.

There are so many top tier college players all time that picking the top 5 is simply a guess: Kobe, Dr. J, Jerry West, Bill Russell, Boozer, Kevin Durant, Elgin Baylor, the list goes on and on. Fun exercise though.

my second five would look like this knowing that i can't throw five centers out there:

bill russell's sf dons went 57-1 and won back-to-back NCAA titles; he averaged a cool 20-20 double-double over his three-year career.
bill walton averaged 20 points and 16 rebounds on 65% shooting from the floor; three-time naismith poy; twice national champions
david thompson averaged 27 and 8 over his career, beat walton's ucla then marquette for 1974 ncstate national championship
bill bradley took princeton of all teams to the ncaa finals while scoring 40 or more in eleven games
elgin baylor averaged 31 and 20 over three years and took the 'gasp' seattle university redhawks to the ncaa finals

I agree with your top ten. But number 11 to me has to be Rick Mount. He averaged 32.3 points per game and it would have been much higher if the 3 point shot was an option. Most of his shots were long range and he had a .483 FG%. Plus his FT% was .843. Probably in the top three pure shooter's in college history.

ya bindweed, you could make a hell of run with purdue greats: rick mount averaged 32 points/game, dave shellhouse 29 points and 10 boards, terry dischinger at 28 and 10, glenn "big dog" robinson also 28/10, and at the post joe barry carroll 23/10 (final 2 yrs). i'd take that team. coach: gene keady. purdue is so undervalued. and mackey arena is one of basketball's greatest venues. the big ten's little brother equivalent of k-state. #playhard

I’d have to go with Alcindor and add whoever else. They actually changed the rules to him down too. He’s the best player of all time in any league in my opinion. And young Kareem was an amazing athlete. Most remember him in his 40’s and over the hill with the lakers.

I'd have to have Tisdale on there somewhere. The others listed are all fine choices.
