Despite failing to make a single 3-pointer all game, playing in front of one of the best sharpshooters ever, the Huskies clawed their way to a 60-58 win over the University of South Florida on Sunday. At halftime, Allen’s No. 34 was retired.
UConn will be honoring two legendary basketball players at Gampel Pavilion who each had tremendous impact on the university’s athletic legacy. This Saturday, before the women’s game against Houston, Rebecca Lobo, who played for the Huskies from 1991-1995, will have her number retired. Likewise with the men’s game on Sunday, the university will be retiring Ray Allen’s number, who played for the Huskies from 1993-1996. Lobo’s 50 and Allen’s 34 will be the first numbers retired in UConn basketball history. Today, we discuss the impact that each player had on the basketball program and debate which player left a larger footprint.
