7. Danny Manning, Kansas

Kansas' 1988 NCAA championship team is referred to as "Danny and the Miracles" because of the Jayhawks' unlikely march after entering the tournament with 11 losses and a No. 6 seed. Still, anyone who watched Manning throughout his career had come to expect performances like the one he gave in KU's 83-79 victory over Oklahoma in the title game. Manning scored 31 points, snared 18 rebounds, made 5 steals and swatted 2 shots. A few months later, Manning -- the Jayhawks' all-time leading scorer -- was selected with the No. 1 overall pick in the NBA draft. He also helped lead the Jayhawks to the Final Four in 1986 and a regional semifinal in 1987. -- Jason King
