3. Christian Laettner, Duke

Laettner's memorable NCAA tournament moments are many -- his shot to beat Kentucky in 1992 to send Duke to the Final Four stands out -- and he was a consummate winner, whose 407 points in 23 career NCAA tournament games still stands as the all-time record. Laettner played in four Final Fours, winning consecutive national championships in 1991 and '92, and while he had plenty of help with the likes of Bobby Hurley and Grant Hill, he was the key in a dominant stretch that saw Duke become an iconic program under Mike Krzyzewski. -- Andy Katz
