3. Richard Hamilton (1997-99), 6-6, F. The best player on arguably the best team in school history, Hamilton will forever be remembered as a clutch-shooting, marathon-running, scoring machine. Hamilton was the Most Outstanding Player in the 1999 Final Four, and he helped carry the Huskies to the NCAA championship.
Though he only played two years at UConn, Hamilton finished his career ranked second in school history in scoring, with 2,036 points. He put up 21.5 points per game, which ranks third in Huskies history. Hamilton is also remembered for knocking down one of the most iconic shots in UConn history in 1998, falling down as he beat the buzzer in the Sweet 16 against Washington.
He has gone on to a fine NBA career, helping lead the Detroit Pistons to the 2004 NBA championship. You could argue that Hamilton deserves to be No. 1 on this list.
