45. Tom Gola, La Salle

Considered one of the best all-around players in the game, Gola didn't do one thing well. He did them all well. The first player to score more than 2,000 points and grab more than 2,000 rebounds, he was a local boy turned hero after leading tiny La Salle College to the NCAA championship in 1954 and a runner-up spot in 1955. He scored 38 in the Explorers' 1954 Final Four, not only earning Most Outstanding Player honors but the only unanimous selection on the all-tournament team. A year later, in his senior year, he took La Salle right back to the final, in which the Explorers lost to Bill Russell and San Francisco. -- Dana O'Neil
