45. Rod Sellers (1988-92) 6-9, F/C. A tough, hard-nosed force inside, Sellers is one of eight Huskies to have scored at least 1,000 points and grabbed at least 800 rebounds in his career. (He finished with 1,143 points and 824 rebounds).

Sellers was a double-double machine, recording 21 such games in his career. He even earned the nickname “Mr. Double-Double” during an outstanding professional career in Europe.

Sellers was a big part of the 1990 UConn team that shattered expectations by winning 28 games, capturing the Big East championship, earning a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament and advancing to the Elite Eight. That season marked the team’s first NCAA appearance under Jim Calhoun, and sparked the greatest run in Connecticut history.
