6. Bill Russell, San Francisco
It turns out Bill Russell wasn’t only a champion in the NBA. Russell won 11 NBA championships and an Olympic gold medal, but he got it all started at the University of San Francisco where he led the Dons to a 60 game win streak and back to back national championships.
Though Russell was never known for his scoring, he is one of the greatest rebounders of all time. Russell had five 20 rebound tournament games, and his 25 and 27 boards in his two title games are the best performances of all time. Russell also won a Most Outstanding Player award, a predecessor to the five MVPs he would win in the NBA before going down as one of the all time basketball greats.
