7. Bob Kurland, Oklahoma A&M
Kurland wins the award for “dude you’re least likely to have heard of before” on this list, but that doesn’t take away from his outstanding accomplishments. Kurland won back to back national championships in 1945 and 1946 with Oklahoma A&M, now the Oklahoma State Cowboys, and he was the first two time tournament Most Outstanding Player. Kurland was the first player to dunk the ball regularly in games. He was also known for leaping above the rim to grab opponents shots and was so dominant that an NCAA goaltending rule was created to stop his wily tricks in 1945. If you’re so dominant they have to make a rule to stop you — and you win the championship the next year anyway — you know you’re kind of a big deal.
