Rebecca Lobo a Naismith Hall of Fame candidate

According to a story on the NBA.com website, former UConn star Rebecca Lobo, who led the Huskies the first of their seven national titles, was named as a candidate for the Naismith Hall of Fame - the one of four nominees affiliated with women's basketball.

Lobo played at UConn from 1991-95 and was the 1995 national player of the year after leading UConn to a 35-0 record and national championship. She was the second UConn player to score more than 2,000 points and first Husky to record at least 2,000 points and 1,000 rebounds.

Lobo went onto play in the WNBA and is now a highly-recognized figure in the women's basketball world as an ESPN commentator.

Finalists will be announced in late February.
