Yokabaskas was a member of the inaugural class to be honored as “Huskies of Honor” in 2006. His 1,275 points current ranks 28th all-time.

A member of the 1,000 point club, Phil Gamble played at UConn at the beginning of the Calhoun era, from 1985 to 1989. Gamble was the NIT MVP in 1988, when UConn won its first championship. That team, and that win, was the first step on UConn basketball’s rise from a small-time team in a tiny state to one of college basketball’s powerhouse institutions. Gamble, who graduated in 1989, was team captain in his senior year.
