The Arizona Wildcats have announced that they will be retiring Jason Terry's No. 31 jersey during the February 19th game against USC.

Terry was at Arizona from 1996-1999. In 1999, he was named National Player of the Year. During that season, The Jet averaged 21.9 points, 5.5 assists and 2.8 steals per game.

"I am extremely blessed and honored to have my jersey retired," Terry said in a statement. "It is not only a tribute to what I accomplished as a student-athlete at UA, but to all the people who helped me on my journey. I want to extend special thanks to President Hart, Greg Byrne, Lute Olson, Jim Rosborough, Jennifer Mewes, the Pac-12 Conference and all Wildcat fans. Bear Down!"

Terry currently plays with Nick Johnson on the Houston Rockets. The timing of the retirement ceremony comes at the very end of the NBA All-Star Break. The Rockets are back in action the very next day in Dallas.
