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

Boyd_Bob act18. Bobby Boyd (1968-71) 6-2, G. The Worcester, Mass. native averaged over 25 points per game as a junior and reached the 1,000 point mark faster than any player in Connecticut history.

Though Boyd played during a down era of UConn basketball, he was the main attraction when he played at the old Hugh Greer Fieldhouse. Boyd’s career average of 19 points per game ranks fourth all-time (tied with Ray Allen)  in UConn history.

He averaged 23.4 points per game as a sophomore, which at the time ranked him second in UConn history for scoring in a single season.

He was a scoring machine, and immediately helped turn the then-hapless Huskies into a dangerous squad.
