There have been some impressive careers of late, like Hansborough and Reddick. And some really impressive quick hitters. Melo, Durant, and Beasley for example. Like em or not, all were dominant.

I've been watching college hoops since the early to mid eighties, mostly Big East, and guys I've seen in person that come to mind, would definitely be Ewing, Mullin, Derrick Coleman, Iverson, Mourning.

And the other big guys that come to mind would be Webber, Glenn Robinson, Danny Manning. And the Christian Laettner, Bobby Hurley, Grant Hill group, as much as I disliked them at the time, has become a little underrated now.

Oh, and small school guys, I'll throw out a couple guys I used to play with at DII power house Bridgeport (Manute Bol went there). But they had an undersized PF named Lambert Shell who won multiple DII POYs and was unbelievable. The Jazz gave him a fair shot, but he couldn't quite adjust. He was a SF by nature. And two PGs who went there who growing up were some of my idols. They ran that weird UB sideline break to perfection. Stevie Ray, and Derrick Russell.

Tyler Hansborough (UNC): hurts to me to say this since I'm a Duke fan to the death, but he was incredible to watch.

Kevin Durant (Texas): Just one season, but damn what a player

Blake Griffin (Oklahoma): Just so dominating, it was unbelievable

Jay Williams (Duke): This dude could really do it all (except free throws). But IMO, out of all the guys I listed, he had the most "wow" factor.

Jameer Nelson (St Joseph): was impressed every time I watched him.

Carmelo Anthony (Syracuse): a standout season at Syracuse, you just knew he would be good in the NBA. A sure #1 pick in any other draft.

Juan Dixon (Maryland): Man, he was clutch!

Shane Battier (Duke): just a great player to have on your team overall.

JJ Redick (Duke): Could shoot the lights out at any given time

Adam Morrison (gonzaga): could score a bunch of points very quickly. With him in the game, you knew that the game was never over.

GTFO NO Michael Beasley

In person, I saw CDR tear up my college, a couple years before I decided to go here. On TV probably Durant. He tore up so many guys, won so many awards it was just amazing.(keep in mind I've been watching live college basketball for about 5 years)

For those saying Durant, the Texas A&M vs. Texas @ Texas a few years back was probably one of the best college games I've seen.

Acie Law vs. Kevin Durant. Both were clutch as hell. Too bad Acie sits the bench now.

Who the fuck neg repped me for this and typed "87343"?

Bird, Ewing, Jordan, or Shaq. Those guys were pure electricity and domination. They have to be the best that I have seen.

Of course, there are Adam Morrisons, Joakim Noahs, players who played outside any real mold, and weren't good enough to carry their teams, but they did it anyways with all of the drive in the world. It was an honor to see those guys play college ball.

It wasn't at Reed. It was @ Texas. The A&M vs. Baylor game at Reed was nuts though. 5OT. We lost but it was still a great game...free throws fucked us.

yeah, I conflated the game from the year before at reed (which AnM won on a buzzer beater IIRC) with the game at reed the next year. I was not at the game in austin that went to OT, though I do remember it. damn, im getting old.
