KNOXVILLE, TENN. (AP) - Tennessee will retire Allan Houston’s No. 20 during a pre-game ceremony on March 6, when the Volunteers host Kentucky.

The 37-year-old Houston played for the Volunteers from 1989 through 1993 and is their all-time leading scorer with 2,801 points and trails only LSU’s Pete Maravich on the Southeastern Conference’s all-time scoring list. He was a two-time All-American and four-time All-SEC player.

Houston was selected by the Detroit Pistons with the 11th overall pick in the 1993 NBA Draft and played 12 seasons in the NBA, the last nine with the New York Knicks. He currently serves as the Knicks’ assistant general manager.

Houston says he’s honored to join Bernard King and Ernie Grunfeld as the only Vols players to have their numbers retired.
