BTD’s Best All-Time Basketball Player: Orange Bracket

  • #1 - Gary Payton (94%) v. #8 - Phil Ricci (6%)
  • #4 - Cliff Crandall (60%) v. #5 - Ed Lewis (40%)
  • #3 - Not Yet Revealed v. #6 - Not Yet Revealed
  • #2 - Charlie Sitton v. #7 - Charlie White

#2 - Charlie Sitton (1980-1984)

The Case For Sitton: A two-time All-American and three-time All-Pac-10 selection who helped Oregon State to a 93-25 record during his stay in Corvallis, there’s not enough ways to measure the impact that Charlie Sitton had on the Beavers program. He’s arguably the most highly touted recruit in program history, the 1983 team MVP, a career 1,561 point scorer and one of the star players in the Beavers three NCAA Tournament trips during the early 1980’s.

#7 - Charlie White (1964-1966)

The Case For White: A trail blazer in terms of racial equality through the social landscape of the mid-1960’s , Charlie White was the first African-American basketball player to earn a scholarship at Oregon State, when he joined the Beavers program after three years in the United States military. Although his time in Corvallis was short-lived in just two seasons, White would lead Oregon State to the Pacific-8 Conference title and the NCAA Tournament in 1966.
