    Could Melvin have his number retired?

    I understand that he may not rank up with some of the others before him but its kind of fun to think about. Assuming he finishes with a great finish this season, would be worthy of retiring? Hes the first freshman who has played all four years and who has had production like this in a looooong while.

    Curious about what you all think about it?

    Re: Could Melvin have his number retired?

    I think he will. Definition of the ideal student-athlete.

    I said this last year to mixed feedback but I think this season makes it clear. No one else should wear #3.

    Re: Could Melvin have his number retired?

    If he joins the 1,000-1,000 club, it's a good possibility.

    Re: Could Melvin have his number retired?

    I thought the prerequisites to have a number retired were 1.) All-American 2.) Graduate If this is incorrect please let me know.

    How close is he to 1000-1000?

    Re: Could Melvin have his number retired?

    I think he should. 4 year starter, lead big 12 in double doubles, rebounding, 4.0 student, tons of academic accolades, lots of experiences playing for national teams, etc.

    I seriously hope his jersey is retired.

    Re: Could Melvin have his number retired?

    I thought he was in the 1,000-1,000 Club already. It'd be great to see his jersey retired.

    We can retire it the same day we hang the National Championship 2015 banner.

    Re: Could Melvin have his number retired?

    Yeah, nevermind. I thought the announcers said he was in that club with Hoiberg and someone else. They also said ISU hasn't gotten 100 points in a game since 2000 so I believe nothing they said.
