I'll make it.

Rashad Anderson!!! Raining threes from everywhere! Okay, not great off the dribble (so we'll sneak a Ricky Moore in there to help bring the ball up and distribute.
CR over DSSo, is there a UConn v. UConn clone war?
(4) Rudy Gay
(3) Scott Burrell
Five Ben Gordon's, Five Tony Hanson's, or Five Rudy Gay's.You can clone any player from UConn basketball history and have five of them on the floor at once (and four more on the bench). So, five Ray Allens, or five Emeka Okafors, or five Kembas, for example. The opponent is an NCAA-champion caliber team, like Virginia last year. Who's the one player you'd pick?
Those two free throws hurt till this day. That was a Final Four team. Make one and who knows how far they go. That game and the George Mason game are bad memories for any Uconn fanI have to go with Donyell. He may have been the most complete player when he left the program. I think a lot of people remember him mostly laying with LeBron in Cleveland and he had a lot of mileage on him. There was nothing he couldn't do in college (except those 2 freethrows).
Butler, is second for me, but he wasn't the force Donyell was underneath. Imagine having two Donyells under the basket... either end. He was a force on defense and the best finisher around the rim that has played at UConn. His size and freakish length were tough to match.
This day and age, hardly any teams press so he would be alright getting the ball up the floor on offense. There is enough handle there. The rest wouldn't be a problem, but just a matchup nightmare for other teams. He had the three, mid-range, back to the basket game, and would make the extra pass when it was there.
He, Ray and Doron together were so much fun to watch.
The mid-range elbow jumper and inexhaustible hustle would make five Rips a formidable team, but I would worry about their defense against five Carons; I still chuckle about Rip adopting "Clamps" (that was it, right?) as a nickname during a stretch in '98-'99 when he was focusing on lock-down defense.I go with Rip.
I was there. As was mentioned the guy he stole the ball from was Wake Forest All American 6’7 Rodney Rogers. The sequence was Burrell knocked the ball loose from behind and as Rogers reached to retrieve it, Burrell vaulted over him and grabbed the ball on the other side.I think it was Scott Burrell who leaped OVER a (slightly ducking) opponent and stole the ball on the other side.
