Round 1: #1 Ray Allen vs. #16 Cal Chapman

Matchups

#1 Ray Allen – (1993-1996)
by Meghan Bard

Ray Allen is the greatest three-point shooter in the history of the game of basketball. That’s right. I said it. His skill is unquestionable; his preparation is legendary. Despite only three years at UConn, he managed to score nearly 2,000 points. He is also the all-time leader in three-point shooting percentage. Allen is without a doubt the most successful former Husky to play in the NBA. In his final year in Storrs, he was named the 1996 Big East player of the year, and a First Team All-American. And who can forget that amazing off-balance game-winning shot against Allen Iverson and Georgetown in the 1996 Big East Championship.

  1. Who are the two jokers that voted for Chapman?? This isn’t the Baseball HOF ballot here, you can have a unanimous pick…

  2. Why didn’t UCONN and Providence schedule games with each other during the 1960s and 1970s. They both scheduled games with URI, UMASS, Fairfield, Holy Cross and Boston College, but not each other. Those were the years of Kimball, Bialosuknia, Jimmy Walker, John Thompson, Bob Staak, Ernie D, Kevin Stacom, and Marvin Barnes. I always wanted them to play each other but they never did. I wonder why? Was there a rift? Any information you can provide?
