Robert J. "Bobby" Houbregs

In the early 1950s, hook shot specialist Bob Houbregs tacked the University of Washington program on the national map changing the importance of West Coast basketball forever. Houbregs, one of only two players in the University of Washington's history named a consensus All-America, remained Washington's all-time leading scorer (1,774 points) for more than 30 years after he graduated. He still holds Washington's top three single game scoring records, all 40-point plus efforts. His scoring ability helped Washington reach its first NCAA Final Four in 1953 when Houbregs led all scorers in the tournament posting 34.8 points per game. In 1953, Houbregs was selected by the Milwaukee Hawks in the NBA's first round. He played five pro seasons with the Hawks, Baltimore Bullets, Boston Celtics, Fort Wayne Pistons, and Detroit Pistons.
