  #12 Tony Robertson – (1999-2003)
by Tyler Wilkinson

Tony Robertson was so popular during his time at UConn that the Daily Campus published a weekly cartoon entitled “SuperTone,” where a superhuman Robertson would foil various attempts at chicanery by his arch-nemesis, Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski. On the court, the under-sized guard scored 1,160 career points while spanning the gap in UConn history between the 1999 and 2004 championships.
