SAN DIEGO - MARCH 16: Brandon Roy #3 of the Washington Huskies is pressured by Jaycee Carroll #20 of the Utah State Aggies during the first round of the NCAA Finals on March 16, 2006 at Cox Arena in San Diego, California.

LOGAN, Utah –The Utah State men’s basketball program announced they will be retiring former Aggie legend Jaycee Carroll’s jersey on February 18.

The school announced the move via social media on January 4. USU plans to retire the jersey in a game at the Dee Glen Smith Spectrum on Saturday, February 18 against the Nevada Wolfpack.

“Jaycee is one of the greatest basketball players in Aggie history and incredibly deserving of this honor,” said Interim Director of Athletics Jerry Bovee. “We are thrilled to be able to celebrate his remarkable accomplishments in front of Aggie Nation.”

Carroll will be the sixth Aggie to have his jersey hang in the Dee Glen Smith Spectrum. He is the first since Greg Grant finished his Utah State career in 1986. Carroll joins Bert Cook No. 6 (1950-52); Cornell Green No. 24 (1960-62); Wayne Estes No. 33 (1963-65); Marv Roberts No. 31 (1969-71); & Grant’s No. 5 (1983-86).

“My family and I are honored to be recognized with those Aggie greats that have had their jersey or number already retired,” said Carroll. “This is a dream come true for me and a tremendous honor. It’s awesome to be part of Utah State Basketball and its rich tradition of history.”

Carroll last played for Utah State in 2008.
