Burke, McDermott, Jimmer, Melo, K-Mart, Camby, Ewing, King, and surely someone from the glory days (either Bradley or Reed).

You got 7 out of 10 (with your 10 guesses).
Nicely done

Three more, all from the old days.
4 of the first 5 winners played for the Knix, with 3 of those drafted by the Knicks: 2 were overall #1 picks and the other was Dollar Bill a territorial draft pick (Princeton being a few miles closer to NYC than to Philly)

McD, Burke and Jimmer won it within a 4 year span, with Anthony Davis in between.

Cazzie Russ indeed.  Won College AP Player of the Year in 64-65.
Drafted #1 overall by the Knix.
Later traded for Lucas.

One more Knick winner still to go.
Probably the toughest to get since he didn't have a standout pro career.

Speaking of, the most obscure name on the list for the first 5 years  is easily Gary "Tex" Bradds.  Born and raised in Ohio so no idea why he was called Tex.  Played with Lucas and Havlicek and Bobby Knight at Ohio.  "After Lucas left, Bradds took over.Averaged 28.0 points and 13.0 rebounds as a junior, after replacing Jerry Lucas. Averaged 30.6 points and 13.4 rebounds as a senior. Had six consecutive 40 point games his senior year"
Drafted by Baltimore, played a mere 44 games, in limited minutes; went to the ABA for a few years,  played well on the '69 title team with Rick Barry and Larry Brown.



As for multiple winners: Jerry Lucas, Ralph Sampson (x3), Bill Walton & Lew Alcindor, with the Grover Cleveland style non-consecutive wins (Elvin Hayes slipped in for one term)

The 5th multiple year winner was my favorite player when I was a kid ___________________.

Art Heyman the '62-63 winner.
Apparently was a difficult sort who got into fights frequently.  At Duke, one of his fights involved both Larry Brown and Donnie Walsh, with all 3 getting suspended for the rest of the ACC year (they were allowed to play non-conference games).

After averaging 15 pts his rook year with the Knix, his minutes dropped considerably his 2nd year, then he was out of the league and hooked in with the new ABA for a few seasons.

Knix had the #1 overall pick 3 out of 4 seasons, since they were perennially bad: Heyman, Jim Barnes, (territorial pick Bill Bradley), Cazzie Russell.  The following year they got Clyde with the 5th pick.
The Barnes year they also drafted Willis Reed in the 2nd round (there were only 9 teams then, and an 80 game season).


As for multiple year winners, Oscar Robertson won the UPI College Player of the Year 3x, a forerunner of the AP award, which started the year after The Big O graduated.

Still one more 2-time AP CPotY unguessed.
