University of Connecticut hoops ex-star dies at 84
Question of the Day
STORRS, Conn. (AP) - The first University of Connecticut men’s basketball player to score 1,000 points has died. Former Husky Vin Yokabaskas was 84.
UConn said Monday he died April 13.
Yokabaskas starred at Bloomfield High School before entering UConn. He was a three-time All-New England and All-Yankee Conference pick between 1950 and 1952, finishing his career with 1,275 points.
He scored 22 points in the Huskies’ first NCAA tournament game, a 63-52 loss to St. John’s in New York’s Madison Square Garden on March 20, 1951.
He was part of the inaugural class of the Huskies of Honor in 2007 and was named to the UConn Basketball All-Century Team in 2001.
He is survived by his wife of 62 years, five children and seven grandchildren.
