12. Tony Hanson (1973-77) 6-5, G. The Waterbury native and Holy Cross grad scored more field goals than any player in UConn history and, as Bill Russell says in the Uncle Drew commercials, “this game will always be about buckets.”
Hanson ranks third all-time in scoring at Connecticut, having poured in 1,990 points in his four years with the Huskies. His average of 26.0 points per game in 1977 ranks second all-time in Huskies history for a single season.
He also averaged 10 rebounds and 3 assists that year en route to being named the New England Collegiate Player of the Year.
Hanson led the Huskies to two postseason appearances during his career, including an appearance in Madison Square Garden for the NIT in 1975.
