Former WNBA star Rebecca Lobo receives backlash for comments on Albany during Iowa-LSU broadcast

Fox News Flash top sports headlines are here. Check out what's clicking on Foxnews.com.

Former WNBA All-Star Rebecca Lobo was born in Hartford, Connecticut. 

Hartford is located around 111 miles from Albany, New York's MVP Arena, which hosted Monday's highly-anticipated NCAA Division I women's basketball tournament Elite Eight game between the Iowa Hawkeyes and LSU Tigers.

Lobo shared her thoughts and what she perceived as a lack of offerings from New York's capital city. In the fourth quarter, Caitlin Clark’s family was shown on the ESPN broadcast. Play-by-play announcer Ryan Ruocco recalled a comment from Clark in which the Iowa star said her family asked about pregame entertainment options in the surrounding area.

"Just go find something to do in Albany. I’m staying in my room and just waiting for the game," Clark responded, according to Ruocco. Lobo then chimed in, suggesting that the Clark family would struggle to find what they were looking for.  

"By the way, good luck finding something to do in Albany," Lobo said as she laughed.

Lobo's comment even caught Albany Mayor Kathy Sheehan's attention, who offered to give the ESPN broadcaster a tour of the city.
