Mount Rushmores: Last chance to vote for your all-time hoops stars

The debates pop up all the time. “Who was the greatest player to play at your school?” “Where would that current player rank on your school’s all-time team?” And so on. That’s why we created survey pages for each Big Ten men’s basketball program where fans have been ranking their favorite players over the past few weeks. At first look, it can seem like an easy task. But as you roll through any list, one realizes it’s a little harder. Where would Illinois’ Kendall Gill rank on the Fighting Illinois list?
