I know important people check in to the boneyard so maybe we could sway the decision makers
I think it's close but he belongs. He was a major contributor all 4 years, he averaged 30 minutes and 10 points as a Freshman....that's outstanding and he only got better from there. I think if you look back at UConn history it's pretty rare to find any 4 year player that was as key to the program from day 1 as Boat was.Great player and person. Not huskies of honor great
With all due respect love the players but Marcus had 1 really good year, Anderson & Brown were really solid but more role players on mostly stacked teams. Price had 3 good/great years so he's very close to Boat's impact.If you put in Boatright one could argue for AJ Price, Marcus Williams, Rashad Anderson, Denham Brown...
Sorry but no. I love every player you named but none had the impact on the program that Boat had. Marcus Williams as someone said had 1 great year. Rashad was one dimensional (but still great). Denham Brown was a great teammate and role player but was never more than the 4th scoring option. AJ Price is the closest to most deserving of the players that you named. Boat played a big role his freshman year, had a fantastic year to carry us through the postseason ban, was monumental in the 2014 NC, and then was the go to man his senior year.If you put in Boatright one could argue for AJ Price, Marcus Williams, Rashad Anderson, Denham Brown...
I love him but I’m not sure he’s up there with the true greats of this program.
most programs don’t have these types of “problems!”
