    On The Fly: Jim Calhoun Has Fond Memories Of Rip Hamilton
    It's always good to hear from the Hall of Famer and former UConn basketball coach Jim Calhoun. On Tuesday, Calhoun reflected on one of his favorite people and players, Richard "Rip" Hamilton, who retired last week from the NBA after 14 seasons and was the most outstanding player on the first of three national championship teams Calhoun coached in Storrs (1999, 2004, 2011). "Our first All-American was Donyell [Marshall], Ray [Allen] was a superstar, and we've had some great ones Kemba [Walker] and Shabazz [Napier], we really have," Calhoun said. "Rip Hamilton was so important to us. He really was. That championship opened the floodgates for a lot of good things that have happened at UConn in men's basketball and other places, too. It was such a telling moment for all of us and he was the star of the team." Hamilton, an All-American at UConn, won an NBA title five years later with the Pistons. He was a scoring machine in college and didn't slow down in the NBA, averaging 17.1 points. "He went on to have a great pro career, three-time All-Star, world champion, everything else, " Calhoun said. "It's just amazing now — we sat through all the games last year in the second half of the NCAA Tournament run — just being with him and watching his growth as a person, a man, a father, I just love him. He's really a special kind of person ... There's no one, maybe an equal, but no one loves UConn more than Richard Hamilton.
