CORAL GABLES, Fla. – Former University of Miami standout Tamara James had her No. 2 jersey honored prior to Miami’s game against Morgan State Thursday night.

The honored jersey was just the third women’s jersey to hang from the rafters at the BankUnited Center – joining UM greats Maria Rivera (1984-88) and Frances Savage (1988-92).

The selection of honored jersey recipients is determined by the Director of Athletics and the head basketball coach, in conjunction with an anonymous advisory committee. Criteria used in the selection process include athletic achievements at UM, commitment and loyalty to the continued success of the University and its athletic department and a personal commitment to courage and integrity.

James, the No. 8 overall pick by the Washington Mystics in 2006, was a 2005 and 2006 First Team All-ACC selection. She finished her UM playing career as the school’s all-time leader in points (2,406), free throws made (520) and free throws attempted (664). She ranks among the top three all-time in nine different categories and is listed among the top five all-time in 13 different categories.
