On Feb. 22 when the Kansas Jayhawks hosted TCU, the Jayhawks retired Brandon Rush’s No. 25 jersey. Rush, now a wing for the Timberwolves, played three seasons with Kansas from 2005 to 2008.

Rush’s jersey is now hanging in Allen Fieldhouse and for Rush, it was a very special night.

“To look up there and see my name, my family name up there is huge,” Rush said. “. . . I’m happy. This is the biggest day of my life. I’m glad that the Jayhawks fans (are) here and I appreciate ya’ll coming here and supporting me and thank you.”

In 109 games with Kansas, he averaged 13.6 points, 5.5 rebounds and two assists per game while shooting 44.9 percent from the field and 43.5 percent from the 3-point line. He was a two-time Wooden Award Finalist. In his senior season, he helped the Jayhawks to a National Championship when the team finished 37-3 overall.

Rush was drafted with the 13th overall pick in the 2009 NBA Draft by the Indiana Pacers.

In nine NBA seasons, Rush is averaging 6.9 points per game while shooting 40.3 percent from the 3-point line.
