- by

Indiana: WALT BELLAMY (20,941)

This could be a surprise to many. His 20,941 points in the NBA are good enough to best Isiah Thomas, George McGinnis and the Van Arsdale twins. Dick and Tom combined for 29,000 NBA points.

Kansas: WILT CHAMBERLAIN (31,419)

No surprise here as the absolute legend leads the Kansas program. Wilt Chamberlain could do it all and did it all. He scored 100 points in a game. He grabbed rebounds by the score. When he was done, The Big Dipper had 31,419 and not all of them came from in the paint. Legend.

Kentucky: ANTOINE WALKER (15,647)

Kentucky has one ofย  the most storied college basketball programs. The player who scored more points in the NBA than any other Wildcat is Antoine Walker. He compiled 15,647 from 1997-2008. This one comes with a bit of an asterisk. The great Dan Issel scored 27,482 career points as pro. However, 12,823 of them came with a red, white and blue ball in the ABA.

Louisville: DARRELL GRIFFITH (12,391)

The Doctor of Dunk leads the way for Louisville. Darrell Griffith was a magician on offense. He could shoot, could drive and boy could he dunk. From 1981-91, Griffith accumulated 12,391 points.

Michigan State: ZACH RANDOLPH (18,578)

The Spartans produced Magic Johnson. However, the Lakers’ great has been surpassed by Zach Randolph when it comes to point production in the NBA. Magic scored 17,707 points. Randolph, who is still playing, has 18,578. A long career that started in 2002 has seen the Z-Bo average 16.6 ppg.
