KRDO coverage of Derrick White jersey retirement

02/17/2018: KRDO (ABC)
derrick white is the first player in school history to go from uccs to the nba.. former uccs basketball player derrick white had his number 14 retired by uccs tonight….white played three years at uccs before playing his final season at the university of colorado… when white arrived on campus at uccs, the number 14 wasn’t his first option but he made it works, as he told me the number 14 served as a source of motivation.. “21 was my number in high school and i was going to be 21 but it was a medium and so i didn’t want medium. my second option was 14 cuz there were 14 teams in the rmac and i wanted to make them pay for not recruiting me and that’s how i got that.” derrick hung around after and watched his fomrer team take on their rival metro state.. 1. first half action…ed bourke the turn around jump hook….is good… 2. moments later dalton walker comes off a screen and nails a three..he scored 29 points.. uccs wins 88-81 thanks. break break break …
