65. Dwyane Wade, Marquette

Before Tom Crean became a Hoosier and Marquette joined the Big East, the Golden Eagles were coached by a guy known mostly as "a former Tom Izzo assistant." Fortunately for Crean, he had a star with a funny first name that writers kept misspelling: Dwyane Wade. Nothing about this team's run to the 2003 Final Four came easily, but the game that truly made Wade's legend (and may even have persuaded the NBA to abandon any last lingering doubts) was the epic triple-double he recorded against top seed Kentucky in Marquette's 83-69 regional final win: 29 points, 11 assists, and 11 rebounds. He's been "D-Wade" ever since.
