The NCAA unveiled its top 75 March Madness players of all-time, top 35 moments and top 25 teams as part of its 75thy anniversary celebration this season. The lists can be viewed at ncaa.com/all-time-march-madness.
Here is how the NCAA came about its lists:
“From a pool of more than 100 former players, NCAA staff analyzed statistical data compiled exclusively from performances in NCAA tournament games [e.g., points, rebounds, field goals, free throws, three-pointers (since 1987), assists, steals, blocks] to determine the 75 player finalists.
The lists were compiled and researched by the NCAA’s basketball and statistics staff, which consulted with the NCAA’s media partners and selected members of the United States Basketball Writers Association (USBWA).”
No Pitt players are among the 75 honored. Pitt does not appear in any of the top 35 moments. And, of course, no Pitt teams are honored. The 25 teams honored won NCAA championships.
There was one West Virginia player honored – Jerry West.
If you had to pick one Pitt player as the school’s all-time best NCAA performer who would it be?
Here are some choices:
Any other suggestions?
