Having a talented big man can take a college basketball team a long way, but it's often the little men who make the difference between a good team and a championship squad.
There is no award specifically for the big guys, but players under six feet have done enough for the game that the NABC now bestows the Frances Pomeroy Naismith Award to players six feet and shorter every season.
Some of the players in this slideshow are already household names, while others will pass through college basketball with no love from the casual fan, barring a miracle run in March.
While six-footers are able to win the Pomeroy, this list will comprise only those players who come in under six feet. See the first slide for a list of players who are excluded by this prerequisite.
