Ranked 18th in the Texas scoring record book, P.J. Tucker was a highly skilled small forward for the Horns. Coming into town right before Kevin Durant and right after T.J. Ford, many Longhorns claim that the duos would have won a title together.

Tucker was a two-year started and despite being just 6-foot-5, was a powerful force on both ends of the court.

The team made the NCAA Tournament in all three years that Tucker was on the team and he averaged 14.8 points and 12.5 rebounds per tournament appearance. With his tournament stat line alone, any team would be lucky to have him on its roster.

While playing for the Horns, Tucker helped his teammates make it to the Elite Eight in 2006.
