24. Tim Duncan, Wake Forest
Long before Tim Duncan posted the exact same numbers for two decades of title winning basketball with the San Antonio Spurs, the Big Fundamental starred at Wake Forest, where he didn’t quite have as much help.
Duncan’s Demon Deacons never quite made it to the Final Four, but that didn’t stop him from dominating the games he did play in. Duncan’s twin 22 rebound games rank in the top five since 1973, and he’s the only modern player with three 20 rebound games despite not getting many chances. Duncan also recorded 8 blocks in two games, both seventh best all time, and his 5.3 blocks per game in 1995 ranks third best ever.
No wonder he was a sure thing number one pick, joining the guy right below him on this list in San Antonio.
