Illinois may not have a national championship to its credit, but that doesn’t mean there hasn’t been plenty of great players who have worn a Fighting Illini uniform. From bygone legends such as Johnny “Red” Kerr to newly-graduated standouts such as Demetri McCamey, Champaign-Urbana has seen its share of big-time basketball talent.

Read on for more on Kerr, McCamey, Williams and the rest of Illinois’ 50 greatest hoops stars of all time.
