This weekend the halls of the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame will be opened to one of the legends of women's basketball. Rebecca Lobo is a woman whose success off the court as well as on has earned her a spot in the Hall, just down the road from where she grew up in Massachusetts, and about an hour from the University of Connecticut where she introduced women's basketball to so many now rabid Husky fans.
There are articles all over talking about Lobo's career as a player, her influence on the women's basketball community and more. We will let those show that side of Lobo. We will show you a little bit of a different side we hope.
Today we are celebrating Lobo with two people that know her as well as anyone, her ESPN broadcast partners Ryan Ruocco and Holly Rowe. As individuals, Ruocco and Rowe are two of the very best at what they do, covering everything from baseball and softball, football, and men's and women's basketball.
It is a pleasure to welcome both back to Dishin & Swishin to talk about the Lobo we see and don't see; the person that greets the fans, tweets about her family and airports, but also the friend and confidant that puts in the work and prep with her colleagues to help make the broadcasts sound so good.
Congratulations Rebecca on induction into the Naismith Hall of Fame! Well deserved, and it is a pleasure to know you, and call you a friend.
Enjoy the podcast!
