Notre Dame, Ind. - ESPN's 25 greatest college basketball players includes Notre Dame's scoring machine Austin Carr. From 1968 to 1971 Carr compiled 2,560 points and set numerous NCAA tournament records, including a 61-point effort against Ohio University in 1970. Carr also had NCAA tournament games of 52 twice, 47, and 45. The 1971 National Player of the Year by both the Associated Press and United Press International was inducted in the second class of the College Basketball Hall of Fame in November 2007 along with Lefty Driessel (Maryland), Norm Stewart (Missouri) and Dick Groat (Duke).

In the 1971 NBA Draft Carr was selected as the first overall pick by the Cleveland Cavaliers and went on to play for 10 seasons. He was a member of the 1971-72 NBA All-Rookie First Team and played in the 1974 NBA All-Star Game. His number 34 jersey remains as one of the six retired numbers in Cleveland Cavalier history. Today, serves as the Director of Community Relations for the Cavaliers.
