He surprisingly comes in at number 2 on this list after Illinois's Dee Brown. I would have thought that someone like Sean May of UNC, who was the best player on a national championship team then vanished off the face of the earth after struggling in the NBA would have come in higher then him ( he's at number 15). But here's the write up.
''Gerry McNamara won a national championship as a freshman. He led his team to a Sweet 16 as a sophomore. But as a senior, it's his run at Madison Square Garden — in which McNamara carried the Orange to a Big East championship, then donned an "Overrated?!!" shirt for critics — that cemented his reputation.
After a few years playing overseas, McNamara returned to Syracuse as an assistant coach.''
