10. Steve Kerr

Steve Kerr was not only a fan-favorite during his time as a Wildcat, he is also one of the greatest players in U of A history. Before he was making clutch shots and winning championships with the greatest player of all-time Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen and those mighty Bulls, Steve Kerr was a lights-out shooter, hitting on 54.8 percent from the field during his time in college. He averaged 11.2 points and 3.4 assists per game and as a senior, Kerr set the NCAA record for 3-point field goal percentage for a single season, hitting 57.4 percent from beyond the arc. Kerr’s gutsy performance and stalwart leadership helped the Cats make it to the 1988 Final Four which, in my book, is enough to get him a top 10 spot in school history. Nowadays, he is coaching Steph Curry and the Golden State Warriors to NBA championships and possible NBA records. What a basketball life for Steve Kerr, his spot on this list is more than justified.
