UCLA Athletics

1. Lew Alcindor, UCLA

Imagine if the legend now known as Kareem Abdul-Jabbar had been eligible to compete as a freshman (1965-66). For three seasons, 1966-69, Alcindor was a man-child in college basketball. He led the Bruins to three consecutive NCAA titles, earned Most Outstanding Player honors at the Final Four each year. In those six Final Four games, he averaged 25.7 points and 18.8 rebounds. He also revolutionized the position with his patented hook shot. College basketball officials banned the dunk in 1967 in part because of Alcindor's production. So he utilized his finesse to carry UCLA to multiple national titles. He's a legend. -- Myron Medcalf
