Greatest Aggies of All-time: Point Guards

Updated: Sep 1, 2020

When asked "who's the greatest Aggie PG of all time?" who comes to mind first? Greatest power forward? We look to settle this debate once and for all with this "All-time great" series. We're kicking things off with point guard and will work our way up.

Are we way off? Spot on? Let us know who made it on your list!

Honorable mention: AJ Harris

10. Ernest Patterson

A bit before our time but can't deny the numbers or the NBA experience.

9. Ian Baker

"Big Shot Maker" "Ice Baker" the nicknames speak for themselves.

8. Hernst Laroche

"Old Reliable" started every single game of his entire career. Second Menzies recruit on this list. Who remembers his jaw-dropping play at Utah State?

7. Elijah Ingram

The only McDonald's All-American on this list. No one finished around the rim like the crafty lefty did.

6. Billy Keys

Had arguably the most accomplished european career for an Aggie. The more Chicago hoopers on this list, the better.

5. Sam Crawford

The all-time assist leader by a country mile. Crawford was better known for his cameo appearance on 90's basketball flick, "Blue Chips." In all seriousness, the PG who led us to the Sweet Sixteen deserves to be on this list. Check out that run here.

4. Jonathan Gibson

I know, he's a "combo guard" but SG is crowded and Gib played PG at the next level... #ForFree. Gib also made an appearance on our All-time Greatest Aggie Shooters blog.

3. Randy Brown

One of my all-time favorite Aggies and NM State's connection to the 90's Bulls. Jordan was reportedly a BIG fan of Randy's defense. Brown followed his NBA career with an incredible career in the Bull's front office. The man could get UP too!

2. Charlie Criss

The Final Four run edges out Randy Brown on the list here. 1970 team was STACKED.

1. Steve Colter

Can't ignore the long NBA career with the Blazers, Bulls, Sixers, Bullets (Wizards), Kings, and Cavs.

Great question, silver.zia. I agree that AJ in his final year would need to show more consistent scoring and also cut down on some key mental errors like we saw against GCU two years ago. Such a shame that injuries cut his last year short--praying he gets another shot.

IMO, the final 3 on this list, including the honorable mention, are a toss-up.

Question - what would it take (if anything) for AJ to crack the top 10? I know the two big hypotheticals are that he gets one more year and we actually have a season. I say if he proves that he can score more consistently, he should be in consideration for a top 10 spot.

I can watch that Hernst play in the Spectrum all day!
