NBA star and former USC star DeMar DeRozan is having his No. 10 jersey retired on Thursday night at the Galen Center.
Four years ago, Gus Williams had his No. 10 jersey retired at the Galen Center.
That means USC retired the No. 10 jersey twice.
So WHY is guard Quinton Adlesh wearing No. 10 this season?
Probably because Andy Enfield has zero appreciation of USC basketball history. Remember, he let Jordan McLaughlin wear No. 11, which was retired in honor of USC All-American Bill Sharman.
There was a story that Pat Haden got permission from Sharman’s family for McLaughlin to wear the No. 11 but I heard conflicting reports about that.
It would just be nice to know when a retired jersey number is actually retired.
UPDATED: USC forward Max Agbonkpolo wears No. 23 this season. Harold Miner had his No. 23 retired in 2012.
