CORNY THOMPSON28. Corny Thompson (1978-82) 6-7, F . A four-year starter from 1978-82, Corny Thompson was a terrific frontcourt player and sturdy scorer for the Huskies.

He ranks fifth on UConn’s all-time career scoring list, having put up 1,810 points. The Middletown native was one of the first great in-state players to commit to UConn in the Dee Rowe era, and helped lead the Huskies to postseason appearances in all four of his years.

Thompson was named by Huskies radio color announcer Wayne Norman as one of the pre-Jim Calhoun All-Time Starting Five.     (Sources: UConnhooplegends.com, UConn Athletics) Photo courtesy: UConn Athletics
