    UConn will be retiring Ray Allen’s number this weekend and the basketball star will be returning to Storrs for a question and answer session Sunday morning. 

    Allen’s number will be retired on March 3 during the game against USF. Before the game, Allen will be at Student Union Ballroom at 2110 Hillside Road for an event that runs from 10 a.m. to 11:15 a.m. Sunday.  

    The cost of the event is $12 and it includes admission for the person who registers, one guest and one autographed copy of Allen’s new book, “From the Outside: My Journey Through Life and the Game I Love.” Coffee and pastries will be served.

    People attending the event must pick up the books Sunday at the Student Union Ballroom between 10 a.m. and 11:15 a.m.

    Tickets to the game are not included, but they are available while supplies last. Tip-off will be at noon and Allen’s number retirement ceremony will take place at halftime. 

    This will not be an autograph and photo session. UConn said all books and jerseys will be pre-signed.

    Ray Allen and Rebecca Lobo are the first two UConn greats to have their numbers retired. 

    Lobo's number will be retired on March 2 during the UConn women's game against Houston.
