On Saturday during halftime of Syracuse’s game against North Carolina, the university will bestow its highest honor on John Wallace, who ranks third in scoring (2,119 points) and rebounds (1,065) in program history, when his No. 44 is raised high into the Carrier Dome air space reserved for retired jerseys. “It’s incredibly well-deserved and I’d state that it’s overdue,″ SU athletic director John Wildhack said. “John’s a class act and he’s been incredibly loyal to the program and the university, so that makes this even more special.″
He is just the 15th SU basketball player — the 10th in the Jim Boeheim Era — to earn such recognition. Joining the likes of Dave Bing, Kendall’s Roosevelt Bouie, Louis Orr, Pearl Washington, Carmelo Anthony, Lawrence Moten and his boyhood heroes, Derrick Coleman and Billy Owens.
