50. Steve Alford, Indiana
The 3-point shot was introduced to Division I just in time for Steve Alford's senior season at Indiana in 1986-87, and, despite his head coach's reputation for being something of a traditionalist, the Hoosiers' star was given every opportunity to exploit the new weapon. Exploit it he did. Alford shot 53 percent from beyond the arc that season, and, if not for his seven made 3s against Syracuse in the national championship game, Keith Smart never would have had the chance to hit the game-winner for IU. Fans today know him as a defensively-oriented head coach, but Alford was one of the first players to demonstrate the true power of the 3.
