I'm pretty sure that Toby Kimball leads in boards.

Loudest game = Texas in 2010. That was just great especially in the 2nd half and i think anyone who was there will remember that for a long time. I think you're right with Okafor and Taliek leading with blocks and assists. I think Rashad Anderson leads with most 3 point fg.

yeah i was at the texas game and that place was rocking... i think that game and the louisville game at msg were the loudest for me... the most intense game was the uconn uk game at msg that place was so amped before tip off and until the end. was the class with gordon and okafor the most heralded class other then this years?

what year was the uconn kansas game?

That was 1997 and it was a game UConn really had no business even being in and that was before Ricky Moore and Kirk King were declared ineligible. It was basically Paul Pierce, Raef LaFrentz, Jacque Vaughn and Scot Pollard vs freshman Rip, Jake and KFree with Monquencio Hardnett as our starting PG and Rash Jones as the SG. I mean we should have been absolutely destroyed. UConn started off on fire and were up by like 15 or 16 at one point but ended up losing.

It was a great crowd. Was it the best? I don't know about that. There have been so many over the last 20 years.

Edit: Kansas was also #1, undefeated and the odds on favorite to win it all.

I agree. I was also at the BE championship game and I think what made it so loud was the fact the crowd was probably 90% Uconn fans. Was anyone at that Duke game at MSG for the NIT a few weeks before the UK one? I felt that was pretty intense leading up to the game and throughout the first half, but after Duke started to pull away it went downhill

Yes I remember that dunk by Stanley. It was loud in there at that part. Me and my dad were surrounded by Duke fans which made the 2nd half that much worse. By the way this completely slipped my mind before... the Uconn Syracuse 6 ot game. I think that wins it for most intense game ive been too.

Man I am bothered by all of this. Best crowd was a loss, most intense was a loss?

Best crowd was 1990 vs Georgetown and most intense was Dook 2004.

I was at both the KU-UConn game in 97 and the Huskies/Gtown game in 90...........both very loud but none louder than 90.....none! A very special night!!
