Starter: Kresimir Cosic (1970-1973)
Known for his enthusiasm and high energy, Cosic would give the team motivational leader that can back it up with statistics. Cosic shot .507 from the field, .430 from three-point line, and .878 from the charity stripe all while averaging 18.0 points over his BYU career. Cosic also was second all time in rebounds per game with 11.2. Overall, Cosic may be the most dangerous player all around to ever play at BYU.
Devin Durrant: (1978-1980, 1982-1984)
Devin Durrant averaged 25.3 points per game in his junior and senior season. Durrant was very efficient shooting the ball at 54.5% over those two years. He was not as strong on the boards only averaging 5.5 rebounds which is what is keeping him from starting or being a center. He currently sits at fifth all time in scoring and tenth in shooting percentage. Durrant would likely be played on this team if the center were a high rebounder, or if the team needed a fourth scorer.
Backup 2: Yoeli Childs (2016-Current)
The only current player that make the list, Yoeli Childs is third all time in blocks per game with 1.6 and with his 8.8 rebounds per game that puts him at eighth all time at BYU. Childs is also very good at dunking the ball which is a crowd pleaser and this past season he got quite a bit better with his range hitting .313 from the three point line, which isn’t great, but for a strong forward it is a threat. Also, this season Childs averaged 21.2 points and 9.7 rebounds which sets him apart from the other candidates as the backup.
