Providence: 1997-2002
A mere 5'9", 165-pounder, Linehan was an absolute pest on defense, plaguing Big East guards for four-plus seasons -- he was granted a medical redshirt and fifth year of eligibility after losing all but six games of his junior year to injury. As a senior in 2001-02, he won the Henry Iba Corinthian Award as the nation's best defender.

2. Eric Murdock - 376

Providence: 1987-91

3. Pepe Sanchez - 365

Temple: 1996-2000

4. Cookie Belcher - 353

Nebraska: 1997-2001
