19. Elgin Baylor, Seattle

Elgin Baylor was intent on becoming a two-sport star in basketball and football, but his basketball coach was dismissed after one season and scholarships were restricted, so Baylor transferred to Seattle University and spent a year playing for a local AAU team while establishing eligibility. Baylor was quick to put Seattle's basketball program on the map, leading the Chieftains to the 1958 NCAA title game. Even though Seattle lost to Kentucky, Baylor was so impressive in the title game, with 25 points and 19 rebounds, that he was selected as the Final Four's Most Outstanding Player. -- Jason King
