McClinton's Jersey Heads to Rafters Tonight
During halftime of tonight's game versus Duke, three former Hurricane greats will be paid tribute to with the institution of "honored jerseys," as Jack McClinton (2006-09), Don Curnutt (1967-70) and Dick Hickox (1958-61) will have their jerseys raised to the rafters of the BankUnited Center. McClinton and former Hurricane great and NBA Hall of Famer Rick Barry will be on hand for the celebration, while the late Hickox will be represented by his wife, Sylvia. A bout of the flu has prevented Curnutt from traveling for the festivities.
McClinton will also be raising money for the relief effort in Haiti by selling two commemorative T-shirts which can be purchased around campus and outside the stadium tonight for $10. Jack will be on hand to sign autographs for all those who purchase a shirt.
