47. Travis Knight (1992-96) 7-0, F/C. The big man was a big part of the 1996 Big East championship team that went 30-2 and earned a No.1 seed in the NCAA Tournament.

A California kid, Knight said that he chose UConn over nearby UCLA because coach Calhoun “wasn’t like the other coaches during recruiting, telling you what you wanted to hear. He was very honest with me.” Knight finished his career with averages of 9.1 points and 9.3 rebounds per game. He also blocked 179 shots, the seventh-most in Huskies history.

Knight went on to play four seasons in the NBA, most notably with the Los Angeles Lakers.
