2. Leroy Edwards

Edwards was one of the first college basketball stars, the six four center who played only two seasons for the Kentucky Wildcats, but would help guide them to a NCAA championship in 1933. He would leave Kentucky after his sophomore season to join the Oshkosh All-stars of the National Basketball League.

While with Oshkosh Edwards would lead the league in scoring from 1938-1940, he would also win league MVP during those years. Edwards is the second all time leading scorer in NBL history behind only Bobby McDermott with 3221 career points.

Edwards had a relatively short career even by 1930s standards, he played only from 1936-1942, despite that he left an indelible mark on the game of basketball. Edwards would be inducted into the basketball hall of fame in 1970 a year before he died.
