Rebecca Lobo Inducted in the Basketball Hall of Fame

Rebecca Lobo entered the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame as a Contributor, culminating a career that has played a pioneering role in Women’s Basketball.

Lobo, a Connecticut native, was instrumental in the building of the UConn Women’s Basketball “winning machine” as we know it today. After setting a state record in high school, the 6’4″ center joined the Huskies program and helped lead the team to their first perfect season (35-0) and a National Championship. She also took home the Naismith Award as the College Player of the Year.

In 1996, off the heels of her success in college, Lobo was named a member of the USA Women’s Basketball and joined future Hall of Famer Teresa Edwards and Lisa Leslie to win an Olympic Gold Medal at the Summer Games in Atlanta.

When the start of the WNBA was announced, Lobo was allocated to the NY Liberty where she played alongside Teresa Weatherspoon, Sue Wicks, and Kym Hampton. In 2010, Lobo was inducted into the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame.

Lobo is now an outstanding broadcaster for ESPN.
