Steve Alford is Indiana's purest shooter and one of its legendary scorers. His jump shot is as lethal as any in the history of college basketball.
While he might have spent time as a point guard, he could easily move to shooting guard if he was in a lineup with Isiah Thomas.
Alford lit up the the scoreboard while he was a Hoosier. He is the second leading scorer in school history with 2,438 points (19.9 PPG). A remarkable feat, considering he played without the three-point line until the 1986 season.
Just think how much gaudier his numbers would have been if he was awarded three points for every long distance shot he made during his career.
His mantle is filled with individual honors. Alford was a three-time First Team All-Big Ten selection (1984, 1986, 1987), he helped win a Big Ten title in 1987 and was named an All-American twice (1986, 1987).
On top of all of this, Alford led the Hoosiers to a national championship in 1987. He hit seven three-pointers on his way to 23 points, pacing Indiana in its victory over Syracuse.
Alford shot his way into the Hoosiers' record book and onto this list.
