LAWRENCE, KS (KSNT) – Marcus Morris returned to Allen Fieldhouse to have his number 22 jersey retired at halftime of the Jayhawks’ 91-71 win over Iowa State on Monday.
In his junior season at KU, Morris was the Big 12 Player of the Year and a second team All-American.
“Big honor for my family, for the Morris family in general, coming from Philadelphia, not in our wildest dreams did we think that this was possible,” said Morris. “Even when I got here I still didn’t think that even by playing I would get up there. We just continued to work hard and continued to get better.”
Markieff Morris was also in attendance for the ceremony.
