13. Danny Manning, Kansas
Danny Manning is the all time Kansas scoring leader with 2951 points, but you’ll forgive Jayhawks fans if they really just like to remember that one special year. That would be 1988, when Danny and the Miracles led 6 seed Kansas all the way to a national championship, defeating hated rivals Kansas State and Oklahoma along the way.
Manning had 31 points and 18 boards against the Sooners in the title game, and his 163 points in the tournament rank fourth all time.
Manning was the Wooden player of the year in 1988 and was also named the tournament’s Most Outstanding Player before becoming the number one pick in the NBA draft.
