8. Jerry Lucas, Ohio State
The accomplishments in the regular season were more than enough to get a personal banner at Ohio State. But it was work in multiple NCAA tournaments and in winning the only national title in program history that clinched the legacy of Jerry Lucas. He was twice chosen as the Final Four's Most Outstanding Player on the way to a title and a pair of runner-up finishes, and playing alongside Bob Knight and John Havlicek, he clinched the 1960 crown with a game-high 16 points and 10 rebounds in a blowout of California. The 6-foot-8 forward still holds program marks in the tournament for points, field goals, shooting percentage and rebounds.
