The BYU Cougars have had an impressive basketball program for a long time. They have had great teams, legendary coaches and great players. The Cougars have even had 10 players win Conference Player of the Year Awards, six First-Team All-Americans and seven Second-Team All-Americans, according to BYUCougars.com. Great success at the college level doesn't always translate to success at the pro level, however.
Although BYU has had 42 players drafted in either the ABA or the NBA, only 21 of them have ever played a regular season game.
This list is the ranking of those 21 players who have played in the NBA (or ABA) out of the Y.
Note: these rankings are based solely on what each player did while playing in the NBA, ABA or in one case, the BAA. What a player did in college was not taken into consideration.
