University retires Singletary

The athletic department announced Friday that it will retire No. 44, which belonged to 2008 University graduate and basketball star Sean Singletary, during the halftime of the Cavaliers’ Feb. 15 game against Clemson.

Singletary stands as one of the most decorated players in recent Virginia basketball history. A three-time All-ACC player and one of only five players in the program’s history to score at least 2,000 points, Singletary led the Cavaliers through the quarterfinals of the ACC tournament in the 2006-2007 season, helping the team earn a fourth seed in the NCAA Tournament. In the 2008 NBA Draft, the Sacramento Kings selected Singletary in the second round; Singletary now plays point guard for the Charlotte Bobcats, averaging 2.4 points in 33 NBA games.

The Virginia men’s basketball team has retired six other numbers: 3, 14, 20, 40, 41 and 50.
