Allen, Lobo hon­ored:

Hartford Courant - - Sports - Staff re­port

Connecticut will re­tire the num­bers of for­mer Huskies stars Ray Allen and Re­becca Lobo. The num­bers 34 and 50 will be­come the first re­tired by the school dur­ing a cer­e­mony in March.

In 2017, Lobo was the first UConn player in­ducted into the Nai­smith Me­mo­rial Bas­ket­ball Hall of Fame. Allen was en­shrined in Septem­ber.

Lobo led UConn to a 35-0 record in 1995.

HARTFORD — The Wolf Pack de­fense let down late in the first and sec­ond pe­ri­ods and al­lowed sev­eral late goals — two in the fi­nal 25 sec­onds of the first, and an­other with sec­onds re­main­ing in the sec­ond — in a 7-4 loss to the Char­lotte Check­ers at the XL Cen­ter on Fri­day night.

The Wolf Pack, who had a four-game win streak snapped by Bridge­port on Wed­nes­day, have now lost two straight and fall to 11-11-1-2 in the AHL At­lantic.

A wild first pe­riod saw Char­lotte score two goals in fi­nal 25 sec­onds, re­sult­ing in the teams tied 3-3. Hartford’s Bran­don Craw­ley opened the scor­ing with his third of the sea­son. After Char­lotte’s Greg McKegg tied the score, Peter Hol­land and Cole Sch­nei­der scored just two min­utes apart to give the Wolf Pack a 3-1 lead.

The ad­van­tage seemed safe with un­der a minute to play but Jamie Kuokka­nen cut it to 3-2 with 25 sec­onds left and then banged home a sec­ond goal at the buzzer to tie things up.

The Check­ers took the lead for good in the sec­ond.
