Kansas Plans To Retire Mario Chalmers' Jersey

Kansas will retire Mario Chalmers’ at halftime of the Jayhawks’ game against Texas on Feb. 16.

“Mario definitely deserves to have his jersey hung,” Kansas coach Bill Self said. “He was the most outstanding player in a 2008 Final Four, which featured four number one seeds. He was as clutch of a player as we’ve ever had here.

"He was a guy that seemed like the bigger the stage, the brighter he shined. He had an orneriness and toughness that a lot people didn’t see because they saw the smile. He was an assassin on the court.”

Chalmers hit the shot that propelled Kansas into overtime against Memphis in the 2008 national championship game.
