CONGRATULATIONS: Ray Allen, a basketball star in the United States at age 47, has graduated from the University of Connecticut with a Bachelor of Arts
Ray Allen, a former NBA great, has earned his bachelor’s degree from the University of Connecticut in the United States at the ripe old age of 47.
Ray Allen, a former University of Connecticut basketball player who entered the 1996 NBA draft and played for the Minnesota Timberwolves until his retirement in 2014, played college basketball at the University of Connecticut.
Despite his success as a professional basketball player—Ray Allen having won two NBA championships, been selected to the All-Star team ten times, and is considered one of the best three-point shooters in NBA history—he decided to return to school in 2008 and enroll at the University of Connecticut.
After many years of schooling, in 2023 he was awarded a Bachelor of General Studies degree. Ray Allen, when asked about his accomplishments, remarked that he learned that it’s never too late to study from his experience in a school where some elderly people are active.”When I was in college, I saw that a few of the resident assistants were well into their 30s, and I remember thinking, ‘Wow, they’re still in school. You may always pick up new skills,” Allen emphasized.
