Mark Aguirre
Mark Aguirre was a star at the University of DePaul where he led the Demons to a final four and was a 2 time All-American.  Drafted number one overall by the Dallas Mavericks, Aguirre quickly became the face of the Mavs.  Aguirre proved to be a great scorer and the Mavericks became title contenders throughout the next several years though they could not get past the mighty Lakers. Traded midway through the 88-89 season to the Pistons for Adrian Dantley, Aguirre was reunited with childhood friend Isaiah Thomas and together they led the Pistons to two titles.  Aguirre averaged exactly 20 points a game over his 14 year career and will be remembered for his great ability to post up and score from the small forward position.

Gee, the guy was the second greatest player in DePaul history, 2nd best Maverick ever, 2nd best in 1981 draft (behind Thomas), but best in HS, best in College. Yes, College Hall of Fame for sure, Pro Hall of Fame yes, if Dantley, Sampson, and Richmond are 'worthy'.
