20. Steve Alford
Most know Alford as a semi-successful, but never transcendent, collegiate head coach most recently fired by UCLA. But in his playing days for Indiana, Alford was a truly great shooting guard for Bobby Knight’s Hoosiers, boasting a career field goal percentage of over 53 percent, including leading Indiana to the 1987 title, a thrilling game that featured “The Shot,” five years before Christian Laettner pulled it off.
That “shot” happened to be Keith Smart’s side bucket with four seconds left, lifting Indiana to a 74-73 victory in the championship game. That title is the most recent for that once-proud Hoosiers program that has descended into such mediocrity, they’re taking NIT bids these days.
