Eric Montross, North Carolina (1990-94)
If you were a Tar Heels fan in the early 90s, Eric Montross was a hero: a hard-working, lunch-pail kind of player. Not too flashy, but got the job done. He wasn’t scared of ganging bodies when he needed to either.
If you were a fan of another college team who had to play North Carolina, it was a different story. He was a bully, a bruiser, and someone who lacked the grace of the modern college basketball game. Either way, it got the job done for the Tar Heels, who won a national title in his time there.
