Dont forget Eric Riley!!! (University of Michigan and the Houston Rockets) (I don't wanna erase someone else' work, but Eric Riley never won an NCAA championship, the fab five only reached title game twice and he redshirted 1989 season that Michigan won ncaa title, and in NBA, was placed on injured reserve before playoffs of rookie year 1993-1994 with rockets, so i find it hard to count a guy who never played a minute of playoffs or marchmadness years his team won)
