1. Hank Gathers - 1987-90 - 2,490 points

Hank Gathers was only the second player in NCAA history to lead the country in scoring and rebounding in the same season. He finished his junior season with an unheard of 32.7 points per game and 13.7 rebounds per game. Wichita State's Xavier McDaniel was the first to do the feat in the 1984-85 season. Since the 1989-90 season, only Kurt Thomas of Texas Chrisitian has matched the feat, leading the nation in both categories in 1995. When transferring from USC in 1987, Gathers put up numbers in three years that many dominant four-year starters do not achieve. Gathers was a finalist for the John Wooden Player of the Year Award in his senior season. In addition, he was a second-team All-America selection by the USBWA and NABC, a third-team All-America selection by the AP and an honorable mention by the UPI and Sporting News. He was voted as the West Coast Conference Player of the Decade for the 1980s. Gathers holds nine scoring records at LMU, including career points (2,490), career scoring average (28.0), field goals made in a game (24), season (419) and career (1,037), field goals attempted in a game (37), career field goal percentage (.590), free throws attempted in a season (315) and a career (745), and rebounds in a game (29). The No. 44 jersey worn by Gathers was retired in 2000.
