SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — Peter Kuno emailed the Your Stories Team and asked why Pearl Washington’s number, 31, isn’t on the redesigned basketball court.
The number was a memorial that was added to Center Court not long after Washington died four years ago.
Kuno feels that’s an honor that deserves to continue.
The Syracuse Athletics Department told NewsChannel 9 that they moved his number to the sideline, along with other numbers of retired players, as a way to honor them all.
So, the memorial will continue on the redesigned court, but will be in a different format.
