(AP) NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Vanderbilt will retire the jersey of all-time leading scorer Chantelle Anderson during halftime of the Commodores' game against Tennessee on Feb. 13.

Vice Chancellor David Williams said Thursday that Anderson's career puts her in rare company as just the fourth jersey retired in school history. Anderson will join Clyde Lee, Perry Wallace and Wendy Scholtens. 

She is the program's most decorated player. The 6-foot-6 Anderson scored 2,604 points, more than any player in school history - male or female. 

A two-time Associated Press All-American in 2001 and 2002, her mark of shooting 65.1 percent from the floor still ranks as the best in school history and tied for the best in Southeastern Conference history.
