As Michigan's only three-time All-America guard, Cazzie Russell led the Wolverines to three consecutive Big Ten championships and took them to the Final Four in '64 and '65. Despite not making it to the Final Four again in '66, Russell was named College Basketball Player of the Year and averaged 30.8 points per game. Drafted first overall by the New York Knicks, Russell ended up having a 12-year career in the NBA.
