17. Jameer Nelson (2004)
Jameer Nelson was named the National Freshman of the Year in 2001 as the starting point guard for Saint Joseph’s University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Two years later, the backcourt of Nelson and future NBA player Delonte West were considered to be the premier guard duo in the NCAA, leading the Hawks to a 27-0 regular season record in 2003-2004.
While Nelson and the Hawks fell short of making it to the Finals Four (despite being awarded a #1 seed in the NCAA Tournament), Nelson swept the majority of individual awards after the season, including being named the National College Player of the Year and John R. Wooden Award-winner.
