The number hasn't been reissued since Lobo's playing days

They have a few other numbers that 'should' be retired.

Kobie in the house to see the Collier HoH plaque-reveal fiasco: the curtain would not come off with an easy tug of the cord, and the entire plaque nearly pulled off the wall.

KLS' plaque was more accommodating.

10 mins later and the curtain drops after a ladder was utilized.

Graphic shows these two are the highest-scoring pair of classmates in Huskies history, having bested Stewie and Moriah by 200+ to date.

Points aren't everything, as they say.

Perhaps, but Lobo's deserved to go first

To have your number retired at CT you need to be inducted into the Naismith Hall of Fame. To be eligible for induction you need to be out of competitive basketball for 5 years.

Bird, Taurasi et al aren't yet eligible.

Rebecca was the first to get a championship and bring the spotlight to CT.
