6. Sherron Collins, Kansas basketball 2006-2010

Sherron Collins barely made it into the 2010s, but he deserves his spot on the list. He’s fifth all-time in points scored at Kansas with 1,888 over his four years. He had his number four jersey hung in the rafters, and for good reason.

In his senior season alone, Collins was first-team All-Big 12, a consensus first-team All-American, Wooden Award finalist, the Lute Olson Award winner, and the Frances Pomeroy Naismith Award winner.

In his junior and senior seasons, he averaged 17.2 points per game and about 4.5 assists per game.

Collins was a four-time Big 12 champion, national champion, and a staple of Kansas basketball for four straight years. Had this list been about his accomplishments prior to 2010, he would have undoubtedly cracked the top five.

He still regularly attends games at Allen Fieldhouse.

Collins went undrafted but did spend some time in the NBA with the Charlotte Bobcats.
