One of the most prolific scorers in college basketball history, Houston’s Otis Birdsong tallied 2,832 points from 1973-77 – a total that still ranks 15th in Division I history. Birdsong is second in the Houston record books in scoring, third in steals and eighth in assists, and he became the first Cougar to reach the 1,000- point mark as a sophomore. After averaging 30.3 points per game and leading UH to the NIT title game as a senior, he was named the Southwest Conference Player of the Year and a consensus All-American. Birdsong was selected No. 2 overall in the 1977 NBA Draft by the Kansas City Kings, and went on to score more than 12,000 career points and make four NBA All-Star Teams as a professional.
