UNCASVILLE, Conn. (AP) - Rebecca Lobo has become the first Connecticut player inducted into the Women's Basketball Hall of Fame, leading a class of six inductees.

Lobo helped UConn to its first national championship with an undefeated season in 1995. She was joined Saturday in the Class of 2010 by Olympic great Teresa Edwards, who won four gold medals for the United States, and Teresa Weatherspoon, who led the New York Liberty to three WNBA finals.

Weller coached 26 seasons at Maryland averaging 20 wins a year. Ray was the first women's athletic director at Tennessee and Andrews is the winningest high school girls' basketball coach with more than 1,300 victories.
