50 Greatest Players in UConn men’s basketball history: 50-1

RUDY GAY34. Rudy Gay (2004-06) 6-9, F. Though he only spent two seasons in  Storrs, Gay made his mark on Connecticut history, averaging 13.6 points and 5.9 rebounds per game over his college career.

Rudy also helped lead the 2006 Huskies to a 30-4 record and an Elite Eight appearance. That team is remembered most for losing to George Mason in the regional final, but it did win the Big East championship and capture the overall No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament.

Rudy has been an even better NBA player than he was in college, averaging 18 points and 6 rebounds per game in six seasons with the Memphis Grizzlies and Toronto Raptors.   (Sources: Statsheet.com, Espn.com) Photo courtesy: UConn Athletics
