Former UVA star Malcolm Brogdon has his No. 15 retired

  Malcolm Brogdon became the eighth former Cavalier to have his jersey hung from the rafters.

Malcolm Brogdon's NBA career is just taking off, but the promising rookie has already etched his name into Virginia history.

The former Cavalier had his No. 15 retired during a pregame ceremony Monday night in Charlottesville, Virginia prior to UVA's matchup with Miami (Fla.). Brogdon became the eighth former player in program history to have his jersey lifted up in the rafters, joining UVA greats Jeff Lamp (3), Barry Parkhill (40), Ralph Sampson (50), Sean Singletary (44), Bryant Stith (20), Wally Walker (41) and Buzzy Wilkinson (14).

The 2016 graduate averaged 13.3 points per game over four seasons and amassed 1,809 career points, placing him eighth on the program's all-time list. His individual honors included taking home both the ACC's player of the year and defensive player of the year awards in his senior season.

Brogdon led the Cavaliers to a pair of ACC regular season crowns and four straight NCAA tournament appearances, including a run to the Elite Eight last season.

Brogdon was known for his strong driving ability and his defensive intensity on the front line of a consistently stingy UVA unit. Following UVA's loss to Syracuse in the regional finals in last year's tournament, he was selected by the Milwaukee Bucks with the 36th overall pick in the second round of the NBA Draft.

He's since made a name for himself as a rookie, especially in a December game against the Cleveland Cavaliers when he hammered down a reverse dunk over Lebron James. Brogdon is currently averaging 9.4 points per game and 4.2 assists in his debut season as a professional.
