(AP) KNOXVILLE, Tenn. - Tennessee has honored all-time scoring leader Allan Houston by retiring his No. 20.
The Volunteers unveiled a banner with Houston's name and number hanging in the rafters at Thompson-Boling Arena on Sunday during Tennessee's 64-58 loss to Kentucky.
The 39-year-old Houston played for the Volunteers from 1989 through 1993. The two-time All-American scored 2,801 career points, which trails only LSU's Pete Maravich on the SEC's all-time scoring list.
Houston was selected by the Detroit Pistons with the 11th overall pick in the 1993 NBA draft and played 12 seasons in the NBA, the last nine with the New York Knicks. He currently serves as the Knicks' assistant general manager.
Houston said his greatest memory of his years at Tennessee was spending time with his family and learning from his father, Vols coach Wade Houston.
