-2nd most points in AAC history
-2016 AAC Tournament Champion
-One of the greatest shots ever
-Top 10 all-time UConn scorer

I remember when he first committed to UConn, right after I decided to attend UConn and enroll in the same class.
I thought he was the next great Husky guard. Even though things didn't turn out the way we wanted, he was fun to watch and produced spectacular plays every game. Without him, this program would be in a much worse position. With a proper UConn team around Jalen, from staff down to players, he could've gone down as one of the greatest Huskies ever.

Thank you for sticking with us for 4 years, Jalen. You have a successful professional career ahead of you. The real fans are rooting hard for you.

This is way overstated, he’s not one of the greatest Huskies of all time, not even in the conversation.

If he hadn't stuck around all four years we'd have about 10 wins in total since 2016.

I'll always wonder what kind of player he'd have been for us if he'd been around during the Calhoun years, or for more than one year under Hurley.

We'll see him in the League.

It was the shot and his terrific effort in that Cincy game that lead to the last time UConn appeared in NCAAs. Without them beating Cincy, UConn may not have made it as an at large into the tournament.

In his final three games, he's moved up ahead of Cliffy, WesB, and Boat into 8th leading career scorer, right?

Watched him since Cushing. He ran New England. 3X NEPSAC Champ (2AA,1AAA) 2X Player of the Year (AA,AAA). Made Mass Rivals a national Adidas program. Paved the way for Makai, Bede, Duke, Reeves, and others. One of the most physical gifted guards I’ve ever seen.

Did you watch the 7 games that he missed this year?
I did.

Honestly it was about the same as when we had him. We played Houston pretty much down to the end and played everyone down to the wire except for the SMU debacle. The record wasn't good but it was pretty bad with him and we didn't suffer the kind of beat downs we did with him.
