Two of my favorite college players. Let’s compare them only as collegians.
They didn’t come much more exciting than Pete Maravich at the collegiate level. Pistol Pete was a smooth ballhandler with all the moves, and he racked up a ton of points while playing for his father Press at LSU. The white globetrotter scored 69 points against Alabama in 1970, and he had a lofty career scoring average of 44.5 points per game. Bill Bradley was a one-man wrecking crew when he played for the Princeton Tigers in the mid-1960s. Bradley elevated the level of play of his teammates, and he moved as well without the basketball as anyone who has ever played the game. “Dollar” Bill was a three-time All-American and the Sporting News’ College Basketball Player of the Year in 1964 and 1965. He carried his team to the NCAA final four in 1965 and was named tourney MVP.
Mikey picks Bill Bradley. How about you!
