During his sophomore and junior years at UCLA, Jamaal "SIlk" Wilkes played alongside Bill Walton and won the National title in two consecutive years. Unfortunately, UCLA fell short of a championship in his senior season, coming in third place. However, throughout his collegiate career, Wilkes did post some impressive numbers which included 15.0 points and 7.4 rebounds per game while shooting 51 percent from the field. His winning ways as a member of the Bruins eventually went with him when he turned pro because Wilkes did manage to win four chips.
