Husky Legend Bob Houbregs has passed away.

Washington's basketball family has lost one of their most cherished names as Bob Houbregs has passed away at the age of 82.  Houbregs played for the Huskies from 1951-1953, leading the program to their only NCAA Final Four appearance as a Senior.  He went on to become the first Husky hoops player to have his jersey - number 25 - retired.  He left the program as the all-time leading scorer and rebounder, and still ranks 4th in scoring and 6th in rebounds.  He is still the only consensus All-American, and was also named the NCAA Player of the Year his senior year (1953).  He is a member of the Husky Hall of Fame, the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame and the Canadian Basketball Hall of Fame.

Our thoughts go out to the Houbregs family.
