94. Wayman Tisdale
Wayman Tisdale is one of the best college players ever and a very solid power forward who had a great low post game in the pros.  His career stats are not huge with just over fifteen points and six rebounds a game and his chances of getting in were hurt when they added the College Basketball Hall of Fame as a bailout to players who will not get in to the regular Hall.  He was the first and only three time All-American in his first three years of college and if he would have not left school early may have challenged Pete Maravich’s career scoring record.  He was a captain and a vital cog of the 1984 Gold Medal winning Olympic Team as the main low post option on offense.
