Charlotte Bobcats sixth man Ben Gordon scored a game-high 29 points in last night's 118-112 loss to Portland, putting him over the 10,000 point mark for his career.

That made him the sixth University of Connecticut player to reach the 10,000-point mark in the NBA. And every one of them played for hall-of-fame coach Jim Calhoun. Can you name the other five?

And as a bonus... can you name the only other school that has as many ten-thousand point scorers in the last quarter century? The answer may surprise you.
