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

CHRIS SMITH 9. Chris Smith (1988-92) 6-3, G. It is Smith, not Ray Allen, Richard Hamilton or Kemba Walker, who owns the prestigious distinction of being known as UConn’s all-time scoring leader.

The Bridgeport native put up 2,145 points in his spectacular four-year career, which puts him 109 points ahead of second-place Richard Hamilton. One of the first big in-state recruits under Calhoun to spur offers from Duke, Kentucky and others,  Smith was instrumental in orchestrating the Huskies’ 1990 Dream Season run to the Elite Eight. That team, which also boasted the likes of Tate George and Cliff Robinson, helped set up the Huskies for year of success.

Smith averaged 21 points 4 assists in his senior season in 1992, and helped lead UConn to three straight appearances in the Sweet 16.
