The pool of players to choose from is a crowded one.

Now this is a serious list! So many names that aren't on this list that could be included. Love the starting 5. If we are going by position, I think I would include Terry Evans over Austin Reeves. And hard to leave Jeff Webster off the list.

GreyGhost has it exactly right. If Blaylock isn't on the starting 5, then it is hard to believe you were watching OU at that time.

Also, Griffin would be the 5 and Tisdale would be the 4.

By the way, the young, mookie, hield, griffin and Tisdale team would be extremely hard to beat by any other colleges' all star team. That would make one hell of a team.

My back up team would be King and Grant in the post, Q white at point, skeeter at one wing, and I'm not sure on the other wing (maybe Erdmann).

Webster and Choo Kennedy should be in consideration as well.

Jackie Jones is the what might have been player if he would have played his 2nd year.

I'm not sure if I should put together an all-OU team I've see play live, or just include those from when I first started following OU (late '70s). The latter is too hard to put together, so I'll focus on the former.

My All "Live" Team

1st Team:

G - Mookie Blaylock (NBA only)
G - Hollis Price
G - Buddy Hield (NBA only)
F - Wayman Tisdale (college and NBA)
F - Daryl Kennedy

2nd Team:
G - Quannas White
G - Brent Price (college only)
G - Tim McCallister
F - Jeff Webster
F - Taj Gray or Bryan Sallier (tough call)

Love this list. My one tiny argument would be Jordan Woodard over Christian James on Kruger's team.

Jackie Jones was a great athlete .. at 6’8” he could literally guard any player on the opposing team. Too bad he didn’t get to play longer …
Jackie Jones, Damon Patterson, and Angelo Hamilton were really athletic players who could play multiple positions …

The year after Stacey King and Mookie Blaylock graduated we started William Davis at Center at 6’6” but often he’d be the shortest or 2nd shortest player on the floor when 6’2” G Smokey McCovery and 6’0” G Terry Evans were out of the game or 6’7” G Skeeter Henry 6’8” F Damon Patterson 6’8” F Jeff Webster and 6’7” F Kermit Holmes were in the game.
