WSU to retire Klay Thompson’s jersey

Washington State athletic director Pat Chun announced on Twitter late Friday night that the Cougars will be retiring Klay Thompson’s number.

Thompson, who has been credited as one of the greatest shooters in NBA history, currently plays for the Golden State Warriors.

He has a special bond with Washington State, however, having scored a total of 1,756 points during his WSU career.

Thompson wore No. 1 throughout his time at WSU. Now his legacy will continue to live on with his jersey in the Beasley rafters.
