Best college player you ever saw............

I played against Ernie DeGregorio from Providence College back in 70. He was an inch taller than me and not as athletic as you would think. But his first step and cross over dribble was second to none and then bam, his shot was off before you could move. If they had a three ;point line back then he, along with Pistol Pete would have destroyed the college game.

Best player I ever saw was indeed Pistol Pete Maravich. Dan Issel talked to me one time about the LSU - Kentucky game when Pete scored 70 something points and Dan scored 60 I believe it was. He told me they knew they couldn't stop him so they concentrated on stopping the rest of the team who scored in single figures. Whenever Pete crossed mid court he was open just like Jerry West.
