Mizzou Basketball All-Americans

Of Missouri's 21 basketball All-Americans, several were selected retroactively by the Helms Foundation. George Williams, Herb Bunker, Arthur Browning, Marshall Craig and John Lobsiger were selected in 1943. Fred Williams and Craig Ruby were tabbed in 1957.

Oil paintings by noted sports artist Ted Watts, commissioned by the St. Louis Quarterback Club, hang on Missouri's "Wall of Fame" in the athletic offices at Mizzou Arena.

In 1988, Missouri began its all-America tree project. Envisioned by former athletic director Jack Lengyel, and implemented by his successor, Dick Tamburo, Mizzou has planted trees in honor of each football and basketball all-American or Hall of Fame member. They're located around Memorial Stadium, the Brookfield/Taylor Training Facility, and Hearnes Center.

Also, since MU began its Intercollegiate Athletics Hall of Fame in 1990, 10 of its men's basketball All-Americans have been inducted.
