37. Sidney Wicks, UCLA

The Bruins had a lot of great players. Lew Alcindor, Bill Walton and more. Once Alcindor departed for the NBA after 1968-69 season, Wicks stepped in and helped UCLA maintain its success. He earned Most Outstanding Player honors in the 1970 Final Four. He averaged 17.0 points per game in UCLA's 1970 and 1971 Final Four appearances. He finished with 17 points and 18 rebounds in UCLA's national title game victory over Jacksonville in 1970. He recorded seven points, nine rebounds and seven assists when the Bruins defeated Villanova in the 1971 national championship game. -- Myron Medcalf
