Pete Maravich – LSU (1967-1970)
It may take two looks, but it is true, Pete Maravich averaged 44.2 ppg during during his college career. His points per game average still stands today as the best ever. It is an impressive number, especially when it is remembered the three-point line didn’t exist in college basketball at the time. Maravich would have scored more points for LSU, but he wasn’t allowed to play for the varsity team during his freshman season.
Amazingly, LSU never made the NCAA Tournament during Maravich’s three seasons as a varsity player. He was selected to three All-American teams, however. The guard’s points scoring record alone is reason to believe he is the best college basketball player of all-time. G: 83 Pts: 44.2 Reb: 6.4
