Wake Forest to retire Chris Paul's No. 3 jersey
WINSTON-SALEM (AP) -- Wake Forest is retiring Chris Paul's No. 3 jersey.
The school said Wednesday it will honor the former Demon Deacons guard during halftime of the Maryland game on March 2.
Paul's will be the 11th jersey honored by the school and the first since Josh Howard's No. 5 in 2004. No Demon Deacons player has worn No. 3 since he turned pro after the 2004-05 season.
Paul played two seasons for Wake Forest and was the Atlantic Coast Conference's rookie of the year in 2003-04. He helped the Demon Deacons win a school-record 27 games the following season while reaching No. 1 for the first time in program history.
The NBA rookie of the year with New Orleans in 2006 is in his second season with the Los Angeles Clippers.
