Basketball Books & Vaults Item Number:0794828035

“Huskymania!” It took nearly a century for a tiny agricultural school in the hills to transform itself into the powerful state university that is UConn, and the game of basketball has been integral to the rise of Huskymania. In the University of Connecticut Basketball Vault™: The History of the Huskies you will find the stories of all the heroes of the Husky hardwood, from Louis Alexander to Walt Dropo to Ray Allen and Khalid El-Amin. Author Ken Davis has spent more than 30 years covering college basketball, including 20 for The Hartford Courant, and here he combines great game coverage with behind-the-scenes anecdotes to present a view of Connecticut basketball you won’t find anywhere else. UConn fans will also find never-before-published vintage photographs, artwork and memorabilia drawn from Connecticut’s extensive campus archives, including reproductions of old game programs, historic tickets, stickers and other amazing replicas tucked into dozens of pockets. You can peruse a handwritten copy of the 1925 athletic budget, read a 1948 telegram to the team from former captain Wally Luchuk and follow Ray Allen’s 1992 recruiting trip itinerary. All of this and more is locked inside the University of Connecticut Basketball Vault™: The History of the Huskies. “UConn fans everywhere can relive…all the big moments in this wonderful project known as the UConn Basketball Vault.” — Ray Allen, former UConn star and nine-time NBA All-Star
