3. Tyus Edney 1991-95

One of the greatest moments in a UCLA Basketball championship run came in a semifinal game against Missouri in 1995. With 5 seconds left on the clock and down by one, UCLA Basketball’s Edney cut through the Tiger defense like butter with his coast-to-coast floating lay-up that advanced the Bruins to the Championship game.

Edney was a perennial Bruin legend as he helped the UCLA to an incredible 31-2 record that season. Edney had finished the season with 14.2 ppg and an astounding 6.8 assists per game. That season, he was named, along with Ed O’Bannon, the team MVP, the team’s best defensive player and made it to the All-Pac-10 for the third straight year.

Edney had played in both the NBA and Euro leagues for over 15 years. Shortly after that, Edney had rejoined the UCLA Basketball team in 2010 under former coach Ben Howland as the head of Basketball Operations and has remained there even into the Steve Alford era.
