Round 1: #6 AJ Price vs. #11 Bobby Boyd

AJ Price vs. Bobby Boyd

#6 AJ Price – (2004-2009)
by Meghan Bard

AJ Price made as many headlines for his off-the-court dramatics as he did for his playing. He missed the 2004-2005 season with a life-threatening brain bleed. Then he was suspended from school for the fall 2005 semester when he and teammate Marcus Williams were caught selling laptops stolen from university dorm rooms. Price finally played his first season 2006-2007 as a sophomore. In his second season, he was the team’s starting point guard and number-two scorer. He was selected to the All-Big East First Team and was a finalist for the John Wooden Award. But in the first round of the NCAA, Price tore his ACL, and the team went on to lose to San Diego in overtime. In his final season, Price took the Huskies all the way to the semifinals of the NCAA tournament before losing to Michigan State. He was selected in the second round of the 2009 NBA draft by the Indiana Pacers. Price currently plays for the Washington Wizards.

Bobby Boyd was a highly touted guard from Massachusetts who surprised many by choosing to come to UConn. Boyd, known as a scorer, provided a lift his first season in Storrs (his sophomore year) by coming off the bench to average 12.5 points per game. After the season, UConn announced Dee Rowe as their new coach and Boyd’s career took off. He averaged over 24 points per game and led UConn to consecutive Yankee Conference titles his junior and senior seasons.
