There’s no doubt that Kansas belongs on the short list of college hoops’ greatest programs, but by at least one measure, it’s alone at the top. Kansas holds the NCAA record with 27 consensus All-America selections in its storied history, and that’s not even accounting for the other 28 Jayhawks who’ve won first-team status on one list or another.
With so many extraordinary talents to choose from, it takes a remarkable player indeed to stand out as one of KU’s best All-Americans. Nick Collison, one of three Jayhawks to top 2,000 points and 1,000 rebounds in his career, narrowly makes the cut thanks to earning “only” one All-America selection.
Read on for more on Collison’s brilliant senior season and the rest of the 10 best All-America performances in KU history.
