How is Dartmouth's Mbiyimoh Ghogomu on on the name list. He clearly has the best name in all of College Basketball.

Mbiyimoh Ghogomu is hands down the best name. It's pronounced awesome ("Beemo") and his Twitter handle is awesome ("Beem the Dream"). LOL.

I disagree, Beemo is a very good name, but I think Herve Kuona is the best name in all of college basketball. (Followed closely by Clyde Weeden, all three of which were on Dartmouth, wonderful)

I believe it is Clive not Clyde which makes it an even better name. Herve and Clive teamed up to form one of the most physical and intimidating frontcourt pairings that the Big Green have ever seen. Look for their numbers to soon grace the rafters of Leede Arena.

How about Beevo Francis who averaged about 80 points a game for Rio (pronounced Rye-oh) Grande University in the 50's? He basket-hung and rarely crossed the midcourt line to play defense. His nickname was Heavo.
