Tennessee retires Dale Ellis' jersey

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- Dale Ellis has become the fourth Tennessee men's basketball player to have his jersey retired.

Tennessee hung Ellis' No. 14 jersey from the Thompson-Boling Arena rafters in a ceremony before Saturday's game with Vanderbilt. Ellis also was presented with a framed No. 14 jersey.

Ellis played for Tennessee from 1979-83 and was the Southeastern Conference player of the year in 1982 and '83. He went on to play 17 seasons in the NBA for six different teams.
