The Washington Times Daily - - SPORTS -

The Univer­sity of Vir­ginia an­nounced that two-time All-Amer­i­can guard Mal­colm Brog­don will have his No. 15 re­tired, join­ing the likes of seven other Cava­lier men’s bas­ket­ball play­ers that have had their re­spec­tive num­bers hung in the rafters of John Paul Jones Arena.

The cer­e­mony for Brog­don, who cur­rently plays for the Mil­wau­kee Bucks, will take place Feb. 20 when Vir­ginia takes on Miami. Brog­don will be in at­ten­dance at the game.

Brog­don fin­ished his four-year ca­reer with 1,809 to­tal points, rank­ing him ninth all-time in Vir­ginia his­tory. He helped power Vir­ginia to 111 wins, four NCAA tour­na­ment ap­pear­ances and two ACC ti­tles.

Brog­don be­came the first player in ACC his­tory to win both ACC player of the year hon­ors and de­fen­sive player of the year awards in the 2016 sea­son.
