 Ralph Sampson
Is Ralph Sampson one of your top four players?
Mount Rushmore in the Black Hills of South Dakota is a truely unique American symbol. It represents American patriotism and history, while honoring some of the country's greatest leaders. George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln are forever etched into the soft granite of the mountain, until, as sculptor Gutzon Borglum said, "the wind and the rain alone shall wear them away."

As much as Mount Rushmore is unique to America, so is NCAA college basketball and its March tournament. Many players have made names for themselves through the course of this tournament and through the course of their careers. Specific tournaments, performances and games played by the college players are forever etched into the granite of time and our minds.

Thus, the question becomes, which players would you carve into a college basketball Mount Rushmore? We've listed 14 candidates from the ESPN era and we want you to vote for four. Scroll down and vote SportsNation!
