Brandon Roy Honored on Thursday

New, 5 comments

Brandon Roy is going to get his jersey retired on Thursday night before the Huskies take on USC. 

Here is a Q and A from Go Huskies.com.

Roy completed his career at Washington in 2006 as one of the top players in school history. He was a key figure in the Huskies' three-straight NCAA Tournament and back-to-back NCAA Sweet 16 appearances. As a senior, Roy was named a first-team All-American by the Associated Press, becoming the first Husky so honored since Houbregs in 1953.

"I would have to say the thing I'm most proud of at Washington was when we won the Pac-10 Tournament title my junior season and we were awarded the No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament. And for me, that was one of the best feelings ever because I grew up watching the NCAA Tournament and to be able to be there with my teammates and to be awarded the No. 1 seed and to always have that under my belt, that was an incredible feeling. I can still remember the day like it was yesterday. It was amazing. It's an honor for me but also for the fans and my family. Just the whole experience was incredible. "
