Rebecca Lobo remains one of the best known female basketball players of all time. She played college ball for the University of Connecticut's first undefeated National Championship team in 1995. While at UConn, Rebecca won the Naismith, Wade, USWBA and WBCA Player of the Year awards, the Honda-Broderick Cup as Woman Athlete of the Year, and was named the Female Athlete of the Year by the Associated Press. She graduated Phi Beta Kappa and was a Rhodes Scholar candidate.
In 1996, Rebecca was the youngest member of the gold medal winning U.S. women's basketball team at the Olympic games in Atlanta. The next year Rebecca was one of the first two players to sign with the WNBA for its inaugural season. She played with the New York Liberty for five seasons, the Houston Comets for one, and concluded her seven-year career with the Connecticut Sun in 2003. She now works as an analyst and reporter for ESPN and has been a frequent presence on television, appearing on everything from children's shows (Sesame Street) to late-night shows (David Letterman, Conan O'Brien).
In 2007, she was made an honorary doctor of humane letters at Western New England College and in 2008, she delivered the commencement address at the University of Connecticut where she's been a member of the University's Board of Trustees since 2004.
Along with her mother RuthAnn, Lobo is co-author of The Home Team, a book chronicling Rebecca's basketball career and RuthAnn's battle with breast cancer. In 2010 ESPN published Fathers & Daughters & Sports, for which Rebecca wrote the introduction. In June of 2010, she was inducted into the Women's Basketball Hall of Fame. She was announced as one of the members of the 2017 class of the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in April 2017.
