#14 Karl Hobbs– (1980-1984)
by Meghan Bard
Karl Hobbs is better known as a coach and the guy who recruited Rip Hamilton, Caron Butler and Emeka Okafor than as a player. But Hobbs spent four years at UConn in the early 80s playing for Dom Perno. Hobbs, who is currently an assistant coach at UConn, set the then-record for careers assists with 534. That currently ranks as fourth all-time.

Career Points: 900

Career Rebounds: 185

Career Assists: 534

  1. This one raises an interesting question. Hobbs’ coaching/recruiting seemingly contributed much more to the program than his playing. Should he get a bonus for that? I think it’s the same reason Ollie is handily winnig his matchup. I tend to think that it deserves consideration.

  2. While I would have no problem offering bonus points for guys who contribute to the program in other ways, the chasm in on-court production between Hobbs and Westis more than enough to make up the difference. Bialolosuknia is one of the best scorers in the program’s history, and he looks sweet as shit in those Chuck Taylor’s.
