    Well-deserved. Who’s next?

    Taking bets on what Filip's new jersey number will be

    Looks like they're not retiring #3, just honoring Morrison.

    That is so neat!

    I fully agree. If you think about the players whose numbers have been hung from the rafters (there's nothing in the release saying that Mo's number has been "retired") there's one common denominator. My guess is that sometime after Courtney shares that attribute--her playing career having been completed--her number will be hung from the rafters, too.

    Edited to add: There's another denominator that also seems important...having a Gonzaga degree...

    Excluding a bizarre situation like a player getting killed in an accident or something, I think it would have to be someone among:

    Domas (knock against him is only 2 years at GU)
    Rui (would require him being a solid NBA guy for 10yrs, IMO)
    Clarke (one yr RS plus 1 year playing seems insufficient)


    I think that's about it.

    I don't think the amazing classic all-time zags without NBA careers would qualify (Pangos, Perkins, etc) and it would be hard to imagine it going to players with just 1 year on the floor in GU games.

    I would bet that he'll keep #3 until he leaves GU.

    Assume it’s for achievements as a Zag, so it could be Matt, then Dan, then Kelly, then the Bonus.....still, among this group and all others, Ammo is most deserving.

    Awesome! Adam is the same age as me, and if it weren't for him, I wouldn't be the Zag fan I am today. I suspect the Zags also wouldn't be the Zags they are today.

    My not-so-favorite part about the timing is that this is the only game out of our last 6 regular season games not on an ESPN channel.

    But to end on a high note, there will never be another Zag like Adam, and he will forever by on my personal Mount Rushmore of favorite basketball players of all time.

    He earned it. Here's another endorsement he got in 2010

    “Adam can really play. Nah like really he can really, really go and for him to take a step back…..he helped get to that championship level” – The late Kobe Bryant about two-time NBA champion Adam Morrison

    Congratulations to AMMO. I'm so happy, and even more really happy for him and his family. It's about time Gonzaga did this. We've been waiting a long time. Just think, THAT jersey will be up there forever. Wow!!! AMEN!!! Thanks for the years of great memories you've left me. You were definitely one of a kind.

    Go Zags!!!

    It’s funny, during the LMU game the announcer asked Dickau when the next jersey will be hung. Something to be effect of: “where’s the Dickau or Morrison jersey up there?”

    Congrats Adam. I approve.

    For the men's team, the jerseys hanging are correct with respect to belonging to the right players as well as the number of players.
