Interesting. Are we going to turn into the Yankees? If Ray got his number retired then guys like Kemba and Okafor deserve it as well.

I love getting reminded of stats like this...

UConn's record during Allen's three years was an amazing 89-13 (.873) and in the Big East, it was an even better 49-5 (.907), and included three Big East regular-season titles.
Just insane. Only lost five games in three years in the toughest conference in America.

If Hasheem Thabeet stinks, then why is his jersey # getting retired?
I saw that on the other thread and spit out my espresso. Dude was one of, if not the most intimidating defensive centers in MCBB history. His entire presence changed the game. Whole teams would turn into jump shooters after one drive to the bucket. Brings to mind the old Mike Tyson quote: Everybody has a plan until they get punched in the mouth.

Belichick likes to take away one thing the other team does best, forcing them to play differently. Well, HTA forced the other team to play a completely different style of basketball, all by himself.

The TWO time DPOY stinks I guess.

I think that Walker, Okafor, Rip Hamilton, Chris Smith, Ben Gordon, Thabeet should all get their numbers retired, but I’m not in charge
Should be reserved for Hall of Fame players IMO. W the exception being Kemba if he doesn’t make it.

Lobo's No. 50 will be retired on March 2 when UConn hosts Houston. Allen's will be on March 3 when Huskies host USF. UConn not sure if ceremonies will be pregame, postgame or halftime. (Oh, and No. 50 will still be available to men's players, No. 34 still available for women).

I you retire those than you surely would have to retire numbers of guy like Kimball, Wes and Hanson. With only 37 numbers available (soon to be 36), if they start retiring numbers that liberally we would be out of numbers in no time.

that’s true. I would like to just see Kembas and Rips retired then

Will be awkward when Drummond gets in the HOF but isn’t even in the Huskies of Honor...
