List RulesVote up the best players in the history of BYU men's basketball.

The best BYU Cougars players ever have all had a part in making Brigham Young one of the top-tier Division I college programs in the nation.

Older players like Danny Ainge and Jim Eakins made their mark in the history of BYU's offense with their great performances in the past, as newer popular players like Jimmer Fredette and Brandon Davies carried on that legacy with tremendous talent and skill. The Cougars have had many players go on to the NBA, and some even had Hall of Fame-level careers, but it all started with their days on the starting roster for BYU basketball.

So which of these players from Brigham Young's long history deserves to rank near the top of the list? Who are the best BYU players of all-time? Vote below, and if you see any players missing from the list who should be considered, feel free to add them as well.
