2.  Reggie Miller 1983-87

Reggie Miller was always a scoring threat, especially from the outside. When he took the leap from UCLA to Indiana in the NBA, he helped turn around a struggling program with his persistence and fluid shot. When Miller had the ball and was setting up to shoot, for most defenders, it was too late, because he was a quick and accurate shooter.

That all started at UCLA where he was one of the most potent shooters in college basketball. Miller had played in a time where the 3-point line was just introduced (1986 season) and it could not have come at a better time because Miller made a big bang. Aside from being a killer outside shooter, he was averaged 50% shooting from beyond the arc.

At the time, when he left UCLA, Miller was the second-best scorer behind all-time great Lew Alcindor. Because of this and his many accomplishments, Miller is one of ten Bruins to have his number retired.

Following UCLA, Miller had spent all 17 years in the NBA with the Indiana Pacers and went to the NBA Finals once. Currently he is an NBA commentator.
