Former Virginia great Sean Singletary will have his number retired at halftime of the Clemson game on February 15th.
Singletary will become the seventh Cavalier to ever have his number retired. The other six players are Jeff Lamp (3), Barry Parkhill (40), Ralph Sampson (50), Bryant Stith (20), Wally Walker (41), and Buzzy Wilkinson (14). Singletary however is the first player to have both his jersey and his number retired.
A three-time first team All-ACC selection, Singletary is one of only five Virginia players to score more than 2,000 career points. He scored in double-figures in a program-record 55 consecutive games to close out his career, and is the only player in ACC history with 2,000 points, 500 assists, 400 rebounds and 200 steals in his career.
Singletary is currently a guard for the Charlotte Bobcats. He is able to attend the game on February 15th because of the NBA's All-Star break.
