10. Don MacLean

Don Maclean averaged 18.6 points and 7.5 rebounds as a UCLA freshman and just kept going from there. The 6’10” forward pulled in 992 boards for his career (fifth-best in program history) and scored a Bruins record 2,608 points. He holds a number of other Bruins records which includes: most career free-throws made (711), most points averaged by a freshman (18.6), most career 20-point games (68), most career double-figure scoring games (123) and many others. MacLean didn’t have the athleticism to be an effective defender in the NBA, but he was a dangerous scorer who averaged 18.2 points in his lone season as a starter for Washington. His scoring touch kept him in the league as a reserve for nine seasons spent with seven different teams. Still, he will always be a UCLA Bruin favorite and should have a spot on this list for many years to come.
