Wes Bialosuknia was one of UConn’s earliest stars. Despite sitting out his freshman season, he still managed to score 1,673 career points – currently good for 8th place on UConn’s all-time list. Known for his jump shot, Bialosuknia still holds the UConn record for career scoring average at 23.6 – bolstered by his 1966-1967 season in which he averaged 28 points per game.

  #11 Ricky Moore – (1995-1999)
by Meghan Bard

In Rd 1, Moore defeated #6 Marcus Williams, 201-50

Full disclosure, Ricky Moore is one of my all-time favorite UConn players. A four-year player, and a key member of the 1999 National Championship team, Ricky Moore is one of the best one-on-one defenders ever to play in Storrs. Two words, people: Allen Iverson. In the 1996 Big East Championship game, a freshman Moore held Iverson to 13 points, when Iverson had averaged 20 points in the first two games of the tournament. Iverson once said Moore was the only guy who could cover him. That game is one of the single best defensive performances ever by a Husky.

His class won more games then any other in UConn history, and a lot of that credit goes to Moore, who was the co-captain his senior year. He was always the guy doing the little things that don’t necessarily show up in the stat sheet. Moore was incredibly quick on defense, and a leader on both ends of the court. And his teams won, and they won games against teams every expected them to lose to (see: Duke, 1999 NCAA Championship game). His incredible defensive performance in the 1999 NCAA tournament, shutting down the other team’s best player in every game, is one for the history books. Moore is currently UConn’s Assistant Director of Basketball Administration under Coach Kevin Ollie.

  1. at 24 pts/game as a long range shooter when there was no 3pt line — all-time best scorer hands down. Played in Yankee Conf. when Dr. J at UMass.
