The All-TIme Indiana Basketball Starting 5

12 Up

Despite a lack of recent success, the Indiana Hoosiers will always be one of the most storied programs in all of men's college basketball. IU claimed national titles in 1940 and 1953 before legendary coach Bob Knight led them to three more in 1976, 1981, and 1987, with a long list of great players passing through Bloomington and making their mark. That makes picking an all-time starting lineup no easy task, but we're taking it on with all the intensity of Coach Knight.

1. Center: Kent Benson

One of only three IU players to be a consensus First Team All-American twice, Kent Benson was named Final Four Most Outstanding Player after Bobby Knight's Hoosiers won the 1976 national title. Additionally, he was an Academic All-American in 1976 and again in '77. To this day, he's still ninth all-time in scoring at Indiana and third in rebounding.

2. Forward: Scott May

Forward Scott May won three Big Ten titles and a national championship while playing at Indiana, and as a junior and senior, he did not lose a single regular season game.
