Round 1: #4 Toby Kimball vs. #13 Charlie Villanueva

Toby Kimball vs. Charlie Villanueva

#4 Toby Kimball – (1962-1965)
by Tyler Wilkinson

Toby Kimball is one of the most prolific rebounders in UConn history. In 1965, he led the nation by averaging a preposterous 21 rebounds per game. A true center in his time at 6’6”, Kimball’s dominance on the glass tended to outshine his prowess on the offensive end. Despite not playing his freshman season, Kimball joined both the 1,000 point and 1,000 rebound clubs at UConn and averaged an absurd double-double (18.4 points, 17.9 rebounds) over his brilliant Husky career.

by Meghan Bard

Charlie Villanueva spent two years in Storrs, and during his freshman year was a member of the 2004 NCAA Championship team. He made the Big East All-Rookie team that year, as well. In his sophomore season the power forward led the team in scoring and was selected to the All-Big East Second Team. He left after that season, and was a lottery pick for the Toronto Raptors in the 2005 NBA draft. Villanueva currently plays with fellow-UConn alum Andre Drummond for the Detriot Pistons.
