A three-time All-Metro Conference selection, Milt “Ice” Wagner ranks sixth (was fourth after finishing collegiate career) in Cardinal history with 1,836 career points, with a 12.7 career scoring average while also averaging 3.0 assists and 2.5 rebounds. He played in 144 career games, second all-time at Louisville, and started the last 111 games he played. He ranks sixth in career assists (432) and seventh in career free throw percentage (.808, 336-of-413). Wagner helped lead the Cards to the 1986 NCAA Championship along with three Final Four berths (1982, 1983, 1986) and a trip to the 1984 Sweet Sixteen. He also helped Louisville to a 113-32 record, three Metro Conference regular season titles and two Metro Conference Tournament crowns during his college career. In the NBA, he never found his place unfortunately as he averaged a dismal 4 points per game in just two seasons.
