WBK Video: Tracey Hall’s No. 44 Jersey Retired Sunday
Sunday, The Ohio State University Department of Athletics paid tribute to one of the all-time greats to don the scarlet and gray when it retired the No. 44 jersey of two-time All-American Tracey (Hall) Yarbrough at halftime of a victory over Northwestern. Hall is just the second women’s basketball player at Ohio State to have her number retired after Katie Smith’s No. 30 was retired in January 2001. Hall played for the Buckeyes from 1985-88, earning first team All-America honors in her last two seasons in becoming the Big Ten’s first two-time Kodak All-American. – MORE –
