50. Hilton Armstrong (2002-06) 6-11, F/C.
Hilton was always known as one of the most talented players who couldn’t get off the bench early in his career. He played on the loaded 2004 national championship team, behind studs like Emeka Okafor, Charlie Villanueva, and Josh Boone.
When Armstrong finally did get substantial minutes, he proved himself to be a defensive force. Hilton blocked a whopping 107 shots in his senior season in 2006, and his 191 career blocks rank him sixth in school history. He was chosen with the No. 12 pick in the 2006 NBA Draft, and has played in five seasons in the NBA, most notably with the New Orleans Hornets.
