The Team of Your Dreams
BEST IN BLUE
From the sport's earliest days, any discussion of the nation's top players has had to include the Jayhawks. While there were enough stars to form several outstanding teams, we limited ourselves to a roster of 12. Here's the complete list.
Still the Jayhawks' record holder in single-season and career scoring and rebounding averages, Chamberlain had 29.9 points and 18.3 rebounds over 48 games with Kansas.
The school's alltime leader in total points (2,951) and rebounds (1,187), Manning scored in double figures in 132 of the school-record 147 games in which he played.
During the '51-52 season Lovellette scored 886 of the Jayhawks' then NCAA record 1,888 points as Kansas won the national title. He ranks fourth in KU history with 1,979 points.
JO JO WHITE
A two-time All-America and three-time All-Big Eight player, White averaged 15.3 points and was the catalyst for two conference championship teams.
The Lawrence native and Pro Basketball Hall of Famer was the '23 Helms Foundation national player of the year. He was named All-America twice and All-Missouri Valley Conference three times.
CHARLIE B. BLACK
F, 1941-43, '45-47
Though his career was interrupted by military service, Black is the lone four-time All-America in Jayhawks history. He led the Big Six in scoring with 16.3 ppg in '45-46.
