Marquette to Retire Dwyane Wade's Jersey

Just announced today at the Coach's Luncheon in Chicago.

Reported first by John Dodds over at Marquette Hoops.

Interesting timing for MU ......Dwyane has not yet graduated but has clearly demonstrated a commitment to the university and the basketball program since moving on to the NBA. I'll gather from this news that DWade will continue to work towards his degree, however (hey, idealism still lives in certain corners of my mind)

I'm glad to see MU move quickly on this. To think it took MU roughly two decades to retire the jerseys of Bo Ellis, Earl Tatum and Doc Rivers -- those waits were unnecessary. And there was no reason to wait on retiring DWade's.


Here's the Rosiak article.
