STORRS, Conn. -- Wes Bialosuknia, who averaged 28 points a game for Connecticut in the 1966-67 season to set a school record, has died. He was 68.
The school said he died Wednesday at Saint Francis Hospital and Medical Center in Hartford, Conn.
The native of Poughkeepsie, N.Y., known as the "Poughkeepsie Popper," starred for the Huskies between 1964 and 1967. He averaged 23.6 points for his three seasons. He scored 30 points or more in 17 games, also a school record.
